Pre-Unity Breakfast @ The Boston Globe

To celebrate the Unity year, the Boston Globe will be hosting a pre-Unity breakfast on Wed. July 16 from 8 am to 9:30 am for all members of the Asian American Journalists Association, National Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and Native American Journalists Association in New England.

It will be an opportunity to network and meet fellow minority journalists from around the region, as well as hear from a distinguished panel on race and the presidential campaign. Some issues that will be explored: Is America ready to elect a person of color as president? How has the media handled the coverage of a woman candidate? A black candidate? How would the election of a person of color affect affirmative action?

Panelists:
Dante Ramos, deputy editorial page editor, Boston Globe
Joe Williams, deputy Washington bureau chief, Boston Globe
Janet Wu, political reporter, WCVB-Channel 5
Sara Suarez, news director, Univision New England
Elizabeth Mehren, journalism professor, Boston University

The event will be held at the Boston Globe, 135 Morrissey Blvd. in Dorchester. Parking is available. Closest T stop: Red Line JFK/Umass.

Please RSVP Shirley Goh at sgoh@globe.com by Monday, July 1
