There was a record turnout for this year’s Journalism and Woman Symposium (JAWS) meeting in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico late last month. The group is a great way to meet with new people and old friends for some education and fun. We had two excellent speakers this year Kesha Gaskins from the Brennan Center for Justice spoke about the current controversies around voter ID laws and Gloria Steinem, author and political activist shared her theories on the current Republican Party and the ramifications of a Republican win in the upcoming elections. She’d been out campaigning for President Obama and doubtless was happy about the outcome of the elections.
I seem to have become the unofficial JAWS photographer, and as I do each year I have put together a slideshow of camp memories.
