Statement:

There's still work to do. I'm grateful to our members for showing me what we can achieve when we work together. I initiated a training program for journalists to receive needed basics training and that helped nearly half our attendees find connections that helped them get jobs and internships. I've worked hard to provide a voice where it counts, including being NABJ's leading voice on #EbonyOwes and the lack of diversity at what was formerly the Birmingham News. I have also helped raise funds to pay for the Basics Bootcamp and every issue of the NABJ Journal published since 2015.
