It’s been a hot minute since I provided an update on what I’ve been up to professionally and more.
TBH: It’s been a busy few months, attending the fantastic Labor Notes Conference in Chicago in June (my first!), meeting other fellow labor journalists and unionists, learning more about what’s going on across the country and the world in today’s labor movement, and making connections for future collaborations (Can’t just gather for a group rendition of ‘Solidarity Forever’ and call it a day, huh?)
In addition to anchoring news headlines every weekday (save Wednesday) in the afternoon for WMNF 88.5 in Tampa, I’ve also done reporting for Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, The Real News Network, Orlando Weekly — with more to come in the near future.
- Inside airport workers’ fight for dignity and livable wages — The Real News Network
- A 24-hour glimpse of midterm battles (and an update on rent control in Tampa Bay) — Progress Report
- Starbucks workers in Oviedo vote to unionize — Orlando Weekly
- Over 20 anti-abortion pregnancy centers operate in Tampa Bay, partially funded by Florida taxpayers — WMNF
- The Florida Orchestra and musicians ratify new contract that delivers 12 percent raise over three years — Creative Loafing Tampa Bay
A lot has happened over the last few months. The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, effectively ending the federal constitutional right to abortion. A new 15-week abortion law went into effect in Florida. Activists continue their push for housing initiatives in the Tampa Bay region, from protections against source of income discrimination and guaranteed legal counsel for tenants at risk of eviction, to rent stabilization and social housing.
I’ll be doing my part to help inform the community in which I currently live (with the added caveat that I work multiple jobs, and am not [unfortunately] a full-time reporter) — and am also open to commissions! If you want to commission me to write about housing, labor, local government, or state politics, please visit my Contact Page and HMU.
