Sunshine Week (March 13-19) is a nationwide celebration of access to public information and what it means for you and your community.

Right to Know NH is dedicated to raising awareness of your right to a government  which is open, accessible, and accountable.

Recently, David Saad, president of Right to Know NH was interviewed by journalist and podcast producer Roger Wood at InDepthNH, a New Hampshire nonprofit watchdog news organization. In the podcast, David discusses aspects of the Right to Know law and the importance of Sunshine week.

“The goal of sunshine week is to bring attention to the issue of open government and transparency in government which, of course, is important all year long.

If the public doesn’t feel their government is open enough and not transparent enough maybe they will take some time to get engaged in the process and learn more about their rights through the Right-to-Know Law… so that they can exercise their right to hold their government accountable.”

Sunshine Week lasts seven days, but it’s up to all of us to keep the sun shining on our government throughout the year.
