As part of the 2019-20 Diversity Signature Series, DePaul will host the 2019 Dolores Huerta Prayer Breakfast Celebration on Friday, Oct. 11. This annual gathering of the campus community honors the life and legacy of activist Dolores Heurta and celebrates the cultural heritage of Latinx communities. The event is free and open to all members of the university community.
Juan González, a broadcast journalist and investigative reporter, will deliver the keynote address at this year’s breakfast. González is the former president of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, for which he created the Parity Project, an innovative program designed to help news organizations recruit and retain Hispanic reporters and managers. In 2008, The National Association of Hispanic Journalists inducted González into the organization's Hall of Fame.
In 2015, the New York City chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists also inducted González into its New York Journalism Hall of Fame. Since 2018 he has held the post of professor of professional practice at Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
