SPJ Releases Top 10 Urgent Threats To Freedom Of Information

The Society of Professional Journalists has named the top 10 urgent threats to freedom of information in 2023 at the local, state and tribal levels in conjunction with Sunshine Week, the annual nationwide celebration of access to public information. “The public’s right to access government records is critical to a healthy democracy, yet freedom of information is under constant threat,” SPJ Freedom of Information Committee Chair Jodi Rave Spotted Bear said. “Open records laws are critical to government transparency at the local, state, federal and tribal level. All lawmakers should be working to strengthen freedom of information protections, not weaken them.”
