ASNE tracks and advocates freedom of information issues, keeping an updated FOI briefing page on its website.
ASNE fights for First Amendment rights and access to information on several fronts, public and private.
ASNE Legal Counsel Kevin M. Goldberg works with representatives of other organizations to oppose legislative proposals relating to unauthorized disclosures of classified information that would, at best, significantly impact our ability to consult with current or former intelligence officials when covering national defense issues and, at worst, could create criminal penalties for publishing classified information.
ASNE is proud to consider itself a founding parent of Sunshine Week. A generous grant from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation in 2006 turned Sunshine Week into reality in 2007 — and provided ASNE with a fund to endow Sunshine Week and to continue it annually.
