SPJ voices support at NAHJ convention

Ricardo Sandoval, NorCal board member, organized a reception on June 14 hosted by SPJ at the National Association of Hispanic Journalists convention in San Jose, Calif. Now is the time to get to know SPJ, an organization that since 1909 has been a vanguard in the struggle for unfettered journalism, he told NAHJ attendees. He added:

“The news business today is undergoing radical change: Newsrooms are shrinking; corporations intent on controlling their message and image have moved light years into sophisticated manipulation; and politicians and governments are increasingly aggressive in challenging press freedoms.

Organizations such as the National Association of Hispanic Journalists are vital to maintaining our voice and growing our space in the industry.

Still, NAHJ cannot do it alone.

Now, more than ever, the Society of Professional Journalists is a critical sentinel in the defense of our work. SPJ has been busy of late, watching our backs. From funding the legal defense of imprisoned journalist Josh Wolf, to monitoring local, state and federal governments for legislative assaults on transparency and access to information laws, the support network has continued its long tradition of fighting on behalf of all journalists.”
