NAHJ: Vote Olmeda, and tear down that paywall!

My latest NAHJ Olmeda-for-Secretary campaign video. The NAHJ national board election runs from Sept. 28 through Oct. 2 (not that you’d know it from looking at the NAHJ website. That’s something we need to fix). NAHJ members, watch your e-mail for announcements!

About Me

Hi. I’m Rafael. I’m a husband, a father, a halfway decent karaoke singer, an advocate for autism funding and research and treatment to combat Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS), last pick on the company softball team, and part of the team that won the top Pulitzer Prize for 2018. Did I mention I’m a journalist? I use this space to express my thoughts and opinions (only on issues I do not cover). It will also serve as a method of communicating to the memberships of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and related affinity groups as well as the Society of Professional Journalists.
The thoughts expressed here are my own and may not reflect those of my employers, associations, friends, Geraldo Rivera, the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, the cast and crew of the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter series or, most especially, my wife.
