I Have Seen Both Sides Now

'I Have Seen Both Sides Now' Reporting from the Frontlines of US and Canadian Elections is co-presented by Democracy Dialogues - Special US Election Edition and the Democratic Engagement Exchange.

Join us as they reflect on the on-going election turbulence, Canadian political coverage, the challenges posed to journalism and the role of journalists in ensuring that we have a vibrant democracy.

Jingle Bells for Journalists 2020

Join the Houston Pro chapter to socialize, network, celebrate and reflect as 2020 comes to an end. Our invitation is open to journalists, students, family, friends, and anyone interested in looking back on a tumultuous year and, more importantly, looking ahead with as much optimism as we can muster!

The event, run via Zoom, will feature games such as a trivia quiz, a silent auction to benefit Houston SPJ's Pagano Scholarship Fund, and a visit by Matthew Hall, national SPJ President. We will also have representatives from area journalism organizations in attendance.

We started the Susanne M. Pagano scholarship several years ago, shortly after Susanne, a hard-working colleague and long-time chapter officer, passed away suddenly.  It's more than just a scholarship to us; it's a way of helping students carry forward Susanne's work.  We offer a $1000 scholarship to an eligible student, to be applied against their tuition costs.

The scholarship fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We welcome donation of items or services to the silent auction. You can also make a donation to the scholarship fund when you register for the event. Email us with any questions, especially if you can't attend but would like to make a donation!
