69th in a 2022 Series*
A two-part newspaper-advocacy series joins The Relevance Project’s Support Local Journalism section. “Newspapers Fight For You” features quotes spotted during this year’s Sunshine Week. Kelley Shannon, executive director of Freedom of Information of Texas, stresses the important battles to remove blocks to public information. Dan Cuillier, a professor who is also with the National Freedom Information Coalition, confirms access to government information improves the health and well-being of citizens. Associations and their members are free to use both messages as part of newspaper advocacy campaigns or add them to commentaries published by local newspapers. Feel free to convert the messages into posters as well. Finally, The Relevance Project welcomes your nominations to expand the We Trust Newspapers series.
–-Tom Silvestri, Executive Director, The Relevance Project
