Help Us Support Black Journalists
A photo by VOSD’s Adriana Heldiz has generated intense interest and social media shares, so we’ve decided to sell it as a print, with proceeds benefiting the San Diego Association of Black Journalists.
About the San Diego Association of Black Journalists
The San Diego Association of Black Journalists is the local chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists. SDABJ advocates on behalf of African American journalists in San Diego. All fundraising efforts go towards academic scholarships and SDABJ’s development programs such as “Pro for a Day”, a journalism boot camp where students are taught how to produce their own news stories on a variety of platforms under the tutelage of professional journalists. SDABJ is a 501(c) (3) organization.
