America's Newspapers Legislative Fly-in

The efforts to pass the Local Journalism Sustainability Act demonstrated the power and influence of newspaper industry leaders engaging directly with their government representatives.  To further our advocacy efforts, America’s Newspapers will host its first legislative fly-in in Washington, D.C., March 8 and 9, 2022.

A legislative fly-in is a unique opportunity for our members to meet with their elected officials to emphasize the issues that impact not just the newspaper industry, but also their constituents at home. 

For those attending the fly-in, there will be an informational webinar prior to the event to provide guidance into setting legislative appointments and answer any questions you may have about the process and what is expected.

Safety is our priority!  We will follow CDC recommendations at the time of the event, including requiring proof of full COVID vaccination or a negative PCR COVID test professionally taken no more than 72 hours prior to attending the conference. Masks are not required, unless CDC guidelines change.  Stay connected to for updates.
