United Airlines has renewed its partnership with the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ). United will be the official airline of special events for the organization in 2012.
The United-NAHJ partnership includes support for seven events: the 2012 NAHJ Hall of Fame Gala during the UNITY Convention, August 1-4, in Las Vegas – the nation’s largest gathering of minority journalists; the NAHJ 23rd Annual Scholarship Benefit in the fall; and five NAHJ regional events to take place in Albuquerque, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
“We are grateful to United for its generous support of NAHJ at a time when news coverage of the growing Latino community has never been more crucial,” said Michele Salcedo, NAHJ president. “Although many companies are rethinking their commitment to diversity, United has chosen to continue our longstanding relationship that began with Continental Airlines. We not only thank them, we applaud them.”
Continental began its support of the NAHJ in 2005.
