NABJ Establishes Hurricane Fund, Solicits Support as Disasters Continue to Wreak Havoc
NABJ members impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey are encouraged to apply
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 13, 2017) — The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) continues to express concern and extends offers of support as Hurricanes Irma and Harvey caused deaths and destruction while also displacing thousands of families.
NABJ applauds the journalists on the front lines covering the story. In addition to the many good deeds previous reported here, 2016 NABJ Community Service Award winner and ABC 13 Reporter Chauncey Glover delivered a baby while covering Hurricane Harvey.
With Hurricane Jose on the horizon, if needed, those in Jose’s path may be added to the hurricane fund effort. NABJ worked, in 2005, to help aid members who needed assistance after the ravages of Hurricane Katrina.
