First Amendment Coalition, Loeb School offer Sunshine Week event

To mark Sunshine week and the importance of open government, the New England
First Amendment Coalition and the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications are
presenting a workshop about the public’s right to know.

Sunshine Week, March 16-22, is a national initiative to open a dialogue about the
crucial role open government and freedom of information play in a democracy.

On Tuesday March 18, from 6:30-8 p.m., the Loeb School and NEFAC will present a
free workshop and discussion at the school in Manchester about the importance of open
access to information and the public’s right to know about the activities of government
and government officials.

Media attorney Gregory V. Sullivan will speak about the origins and sources of
constitutional and statutory rights to know and receive information, including the federal
Freedom of Information Act and New Hampshire’s Right to Know Law.

Representatives of The Nashua Telegraph will outline their award-winning efforts to
educate the public and to open government to the light of public scrutiny.

Attendees will receive materials designed to aid efforts to obtain public records and
information.

A question and answer period will follow.

6:30 – 8 pm
Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications
