This event is one of many organized across the country in recognition of Sunshine Week 2009 - a national initiative about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Sunshine Sunday began with the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors in 2002 as a response to overzealous legislation that would have removed public information from view under the guise of appropriate post-9/11 response. The American Society of Newspaper Editors led the first nationwide Sunshine Week and the League of Women Voters published, “Looking for Sunshine, Protecting Your Right to Know” as part of the 2006 Sunshine Week efforts.
