NC Sunshine Center

Sunshine Day March 11

Via e-mail from our friends at NC's Open Government Coalition:

Please join us for Sunshine Day from noon to 4 p.m. Monday, March 11 at the McKimmon Center on the N.C. State University campus. Speakers will include veteran journalists from North Carolina and more than a dozen experts and advocates for open government, including our keynote speaker Lucy Dalglish, the dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland. We encourage citizens, journalists, government employees, librarians, lawyers, public officials, anyone and everyone to attend.

I don't have to tell anyone reading this what's at stake, now more than ever. The NC GOP knows that most of their policy efforts aid a handful of the wealthy while punishing the vast majority of our citizenry. And they will try to conceal that from the public at-large whenever possible. We can't allow that to happen.
