Sunshine Week was first celebrated in 2005 by the American Society of News Editors to educate the public on the importance of open government. Sunshine Week continues to celebrate access to public information and inform on the dangers of excessive and unnecessary secrecy by our various governmental entities.
In honor of this year’s Sunshine Week, LWVHC Observer Team invites you to a lunch and learn for League members and the public on open records laws. We’ll get a little background on the topic and hear from a panel of journalists on their experiences and perspectives on obtaining information using these sources today. The Panel will include Bill Moss, Editor of Hendersonville Lightning and Angie Newsome, Founder and Executive Director of Carolina Public Press, which is a media sponsor of this event.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch and an enquiring mind!
Listen to the Caroling Public Press interview with Co-president, Rachel Poller, and Observer Team Chair, Sandra Mowell, regarding this program and the League HERE. There are 3 interviews on this recording; ours is second at about 11 1/2 minutes.
The event is free and open to the public. Please park at the Self-Help Credit Union next door which has graciously offered parking behind their office. LWVHC celebrates Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion by welcoming all members of our community.
