Toyota to celebrate NAHJ’s 30th year of advocacy at upcoming San Antonio convention

Toyota is pleased to welcome the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) to San Antonio, where the Toyota Tacoma and Tundra vehicles are manufactured. Toyota is the title sponsor of the NAHJ 2014 Convention, which runs August 7 through August 9, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. This year marks the 30th anniversary of NAHJ, an organization dedicated to increasing the visibility of Latinos in the news industry.

“At Toyota, we support NAHJ’s efforts to create a national voice for Hispanic journalists,” said Patricia Salas Pineda, group vice president of Hispanic Business Strategy Group at Toyota.  “Toyota is honored to be the number one auto company among Latinos, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate our connection with the Hispanic community than to support NAHJ, the country’s largest and most influential group of Latino journalists. We are especially happy that we can join NAHJ in San Antonio where Toyota manufactures two of its popular vehicles.”

“Toyota has supported NAHJ for years, so we’re particularly happy to have them be the NAHJ 2014 Convention’s title sponsor,” said Hugo Balta, NAHJ president. “We are proud to celebrate our 30thanniversary of being the leading Hispanic journalism association in the country. Our members are not only top journalists, but they are also the storytellers of our community.”

NAHJ has approximately 1,500 members, including working journalists, journalism students, other media-related professionals and journalism educators. More than 1,000 journalists, public officials and other Hispanic members of the news community are expected to attend the NAHJ convention this year.
