FOI Committee
This committee is the watchdog of press freedoms across the nation. It relies upon a network of volunteers in each state organized under Project Sunshine. These SPJ members are on the front lines for assaults to the First Amendment and when lawmakers attempt to restrict the public's access to documents and the government's business. The committee often is called upon to intervene in instances where the media is restricted.

DC Chapter honors journalism legends at annual dinner

The DC Pro Chapter recently held its annual Dateline Awards Dinner at the National Press Club. National SPJ President Christine Tatum and Executive Director Terry Harper were among the notables at the head table.

Hall of Fame inductees included Muriel Dobbin, retired from McClatchy; Bob Franken, formerly of CNN; Terry Hunt, Associated Press; and Mark Knoller, CBS News. Past National SPJ President Reginald Stuart, also a Wells Key winner, received the Distinguished Service Award. In addition to these honors, the annual Dateline awards were presented to media in the DC area.

The DC Pro Chapter is looking forward to seeing SPJ members from all over the country for the SDX dinner on July 20. The chapter will tempt those visitors to attend the annual summer gathering, scheduled as a picnic at the Zoo the following day.
