LIVESTREAM: Hillary Clinton Takes on Black and Latinx Journalists

By Kenrya Rankin Aug 05, 2016

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is in Washington, D.C. today (August 5), where she will give a noon E.T. speech to a room full of Black and Latinx journalists attending the joint National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists convention.

“It is notable that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has recognized the 2016 NABJ-NAHJ Convention as a vital gathering to discuss her platform and the issues impacting black and Latino communities,” NABJ President Sarah Glover said in a statement. “Presidential nominees and U.S. presidents from both parties have attended NABJ annual conventions, including President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush, and presidential nominees Barack Obama, Bob Dole and Al Gore. We’re ecstatic to add the first woman nominee to our list.”

But will she address the issues that most impact people of color? She didn’t shy away from mentioning them in her nomination acceptance speech at last week’s Democratic National Convention. There is a chance she will use this speech as an opportunity to dive deep into her proposed policy plans to address issues like police violence, criminal justice reform and creating a clear path to citizenship for immigrants. Watch the livestream video above to find out. The speech, paired with a question and answer session, is slated to start at 12 pm. E.T.
