Annette Jiménez, staff reporter for El Mensajero Católico, received 3rd place from The New York Press Association (NYPA) award for Best News or Feature Series, within their 2011 Better Newspaper Contest last month.
This award was for a touching and inspiring story, written with sensibility and respect by Annette about local children’s rights advocate, Marisol Ramos-Lopez.
“Families of every culture in this country need to break the silence and talk openly with each other more often so that this kind of abuse can be prevented and addressed if it has occurred”
Child abuse is a big problem that affect many homes in secrecy. Not an easy subject to talk about it, but that needs to be addressed. We owe it to our kids.
