The last several days, journalists have been risking their lives to report on the ground at the scenes of protests across the country in response to the death of #GeorgeFloyd. America's Newspapers, the News Media Alliance and National Newspaper Association call on local law enforcement and government officials to recognize the importance of their role and ensure their safety during these dangerous and unpredictable events.

It is “ordinary” Americans — and not journalists — who make the most use of open meetings and freedom of information laws. Americans want to know what is going on in their public schools. They want to know how their town is spending money maintaining streets and sidewalks. They want to know how their property taxes compare to similar homes. They want to be in the room when a zoning change is proposed in their neighborhood.

Sunshine Week (March 15-21) is a perfect opportunity to remind Americans that is it their money that produces information that belongs to them, and it is their elected and appointed officials who must make decisions in front of them and not behind closed doors.

No one covers the happenings in communities throughout the state like the daily and weekly newspapers of the Alabama Press Association.

The Alabama Press Association is the state trade association of daily and weekly newspapers in Alabama. Its active membership includes 24 daily newspapers and 99 non-daily newspapers. In addition, its membership includes over 100 associate members, which represent newspaper vendors, colleges and universities and other organizations allied to the newspaper industry.

Active members must have been published weekly under a Publications Class (Second Class) Postal Permit for a period of one year.

Founded in 1871 as the Editors and Publishers Association of Alabama, the name was changed to Alabama Press Association in 1891.

APA represents the interests of the newspaper industry by offering two annual conventions and a number of workshops and conferences. It also represents the newspaper industry before the state legislature, focusing on government access laws and on business-related laws that impact the newspaper industry. It also offers media law advice to active member newspapers through its APA Legal Hotline, media law guides and offers a number of other services.

APA acts as a clearing house of information that it provides to members through its monthly newsletter, AlaPressa, and its semi-annual tabloid, The Alabama Publisher. In addition, it publishes an annual newspaper directory and semi-annual advertising rate updates. The APA staff also seeks to help members find answers to problems and challenges they face by referring them to other members or to experts outside the membership.
