The North Carolina Open Government Coalition has hosted Sunshine Week activities, including its annual conference, since 2007 when it launched the Sunshine Center housed at Elon University.

Sunshine Week participants include journalists, news organizations, libraries, government watchdog organizations, schools, public servants, freedom of information advocacy groups and others interested in strengthening and protecting the public’s right to know.

During Sunshine Week, the NC Open Government Coalition invites citizens, journalists, government leaders and public servants and educators to get involved in our efforts to educate the public about transparency issues in North Carolina and to pledge to make our state a more open and transparent place to conduct government business.
