During Sunshine Week 2021, SEJ facilitated an enlightening conversation, March 18, 2021, 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET, with top officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on government transparency and media access. Following years of eroding media relations, the Biden Administration seems poised to make some changes. Bring your questions and personal anecdotes into the mix.
