NAHJ revamps online presence

 The Bay Area Chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists began renovating its digital presence in August to enable members to access their benefits online, according to a chapter spokesperson. The new website will create a space where members can discover professional development opportunities and social gatherings. It will also be a place where news bureau leaders can learn how to sensitively cover issues that are salient in communities that include people of color. The developer who is working on the site says she expects it to be fully functional by the end of August 2014.

Hot Latin Nights: NAHJ Bay Area’s first fundraiser


by Nathan Olivarez-Giles

The National Association of Hispanic Journalists Bay Area Chapter is hosting its first annual fundraiser, Hot Latin Nights, at El Techo de Lolinda in San Francisco on June 8.

Let the elevator whisk you up to a view you can’t get in Dolores Park. El Techo’s pan-Latin American cocktails reboot the familiar and dust off the obscure. You can get a margarita or a caipirinha, or try the Chilcano, a pisco-and-ginger-beer concoction that gets upgraded with bitters and fresh ginger syrup. It’s as fruity as it looks. Tequila fans shouldn’t overlook the subtler Mexican Firing Squad, made with Calle 23 Reposado.

Please join us for this festive networking event. Bay area journalists as well as Hugo Balta, the President of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, will be in attendance.

All proceeds go to their work to provide scholarships and training for local Latino journalists.

Tequila, Mezcal, Rum & Pisco tasting! Hor D’oeuvres, Music, Latino Art and more!

Tickets $40 in advance, purchase by June 5; or $50 at the door, cash only.

We will also be selling raffle tickets for a chance to win TWO United Airline tickets worth a total of $2,000 for ANYWHERE in the world United flies. As well as other great prizes.
