March 17:

St. Patrick’s Day social with Sunshine Week tales

Colorado Press Women is planning a Zoom social on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, at 4 p.m. — a chance to chat with other members and share a toast or two without navigating snowy streets or risking a DUI.  Because this coincides with Sunshine Week (March 12-18), we’ve also invited Julia Cardi, CPW’s representative to the Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition and a reporter for the Denver Gazette, to share some tales of how she’s used the FOI Act. Other reporters are welcome to share their adventures too.

The Zoom link will be shared with all CPW members in good standing a week or two before the event. There’s no charge for this.

Sunshine Week is a nationwide event that raises awareness of the importance of open government and promotes dialogue on the impact of excessive official secrecy.
