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 am a proud member of the national board of the Society of Professional Journalists.
But 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 my fellow journalists, particularly those at SPJ but also the members of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the other former members of the UNITY coalition.
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.
