Money in Politics: Reporting on Campaign Finance and Lobbying

Event Date: 
October 20, 2023

Political spending is expected to reach record-breaking heights in the coming year.

Journalists will play a crucial role in informing the public about who and what organizations are funding candidates, ballot measures, and policy debates in Washington, D.C., and state capitals across the country. But campaign finance and lobbying laws are complex and often opaque, posing challenges to journalists assigned with tracking money in politics and the lobbying beat.

To help you with your reporting, the National Press Club Journalism Institute and the nonpartisan research group OpenSecrets are hosting an Oct. 20, 2023 training at 11:30 a.m. ET on the basics of how to cover campaign finance and lobbying.
