The Journalism and Women Symposium (JAWS) supports the professional empowerment and personal growth of women in journalism and works toward a more accurate portrayal of the whole society. We do this at our Conference and Mentoring Project, through our fellowship programs and at regional gatherings.

    Sonia Nazario, whose book “Enrique’s Journey” is now used in classrooms across the country, has been added to the Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) 2014 program.

    Nazario first reported on children who make the perilous journey from Honduras to the United States for her six-part series in the Los Angeles Times, which won the 2003 Pulitzer for feature writing. Earlier this year, she re-reported the story, traveling on top of freight trains with boys as young as seven to discover firsthand what is happening now.
