NAHJ VP Arelis Hernández on fair treatment for Hispanic journalists and reporting for the Washington Post

On this episode, Mark Simon is joined by Arelis Hernández, a vice president for print for the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and a reporter covering Texas and the US-Mexican border for the Washington Post.

Arelis talked about the goals of the organization, making sure Hispanic journalists receive opportunities for advancement and aren't unfairly treated when it comes to the industry's cutting jobs. She also talked about the treatment of Hispanics in the media, including the inaccuracy of the term minority, and what non-Hispanic people can do to aid the NAHJ's cause.

Arelis also discussed her current job for the Washington Post, some of the stories she'd written about the ejection, and how she comes up with story ideas. Lastly, she offered advice for journalists wanting to take on organizational leadership positions and picked a journalist that she wanted to salute.
