Sunshine Week

March 13-19, 2022

Make plans now to join SCPA and news organizations across the country in the discussion about the importance of access to public information and what it means for you and your community.

SCPA and News Leaders Association have several resources to help promote Sunshine Week.

We also encourage you to highlight the importance of openness through your own stories, editorials, columns, cartoons and graphics. After you’ve published your Sunshine Week content, please share them with us!
