MEDIA ADVISORY: Mitt Romney To Address Hispanic Republican Convention

He seems to be the only one putting effort to address the population of Latino heritage. Whether he is being successful, or whether he has a message that resonates is to be determined, but the effort will count for something.

Conference for Minority Journalists of Faith in NY

I’ll be a guest panelist during the Conference for Minority Journalists of Faith this coming November 2-3, 2007. I believe the topic of the panel will be the power of blogging and internet writing. Should be a spirited discussion and a great learning experience. I learn a lot by engaging with the young aspiring journalists, as well as through conversations with the WJI faculty.

Here is what the conference is going to be about:

Working and aspiring minority journalists of faith will gather together for the annual World Journalism Institute weekend conference for minority journalists of faith in New York City at The King’s College in midtown Manhattan.

Those who attend will be encouraged and challenged to integrate their Christian faith and journalism practice in a fashion appropriate for today’s mainstream newsrooms. This unique conference provides an opportunity for meeting other like-minded journalists and learn from outstanding role models.

The two-day conference will be composed of lectures, seminars, media tours and fellowship.
