CHAVKIN DEADLINE EXTENDED!
You have until Friday, Oct. 26th to RSVP
The Chavkin Prize for Integrity in
Latin American Journalism
Along with the Chavkin family, we are also pleased to be honoring the winner of this year's Chavkin Award, Felix Antonio Molina, on October 30th, here in New York City. A Honduran investigative reporter and radio journalist, Molina hosts Resistencia, which is the voice of the country's anti-regime resistance movement. The network that airs the program, Radio Globo, has been shut down several times since the 2009 military coup, and Molina himself has received numerous death threats via text message. We're sure it will be exciting to meet him and hear about his important work in person.
Plus, there's Greg Grandin—NYU professor of history and Latin America expert. His 2009 book Fordlandia was a finalist for the National Book Award and for the Pulitzer Prize, and he will be giving the keynote address at the Chavkin Award ceremony.
All NACLA supporters are cordially invited to attend the Chavkin Award for Integrity in Latin America.
