Reaching The Hispanic Audience

NAHJ is short for The National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and the organization is dedicated to ‘the recognition & professional advancement of Hispanics in the news industry’.

NAHJ’s South Florida Chapter represents members in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties. It is the organization’s goal to provide journalists with opportunities to sharpen their skills, network, enhance conversation, and broaden their understanding of issues impacting the various Latino communities. Additionally, the NAHJ aims to promote the hiring and retention of Latino journalists across all levels of news reporting and publishing management.

The NAHJ South Florida Chapter is constantly looking for the best ways to support Latino reporters and editors and provides lots of feedback on their publications. They also actively review and consider their online work. The NAHJ enables the forming of regional chapters across the U.S. by at least 10 regular NAHJ members who are living or employed in the region where the chapter will be established, but the number of chapters limited to one for any county or parish.

The NAHJ is represented regularly at various South Florida job fairs and hiring events to promote its activities and recruit top talent. If you’re interested, check out a few events where the organization is present:
