Strengthening Voices of Community Way for Every Voice to Be Heard

El ObservadorWe believe transformational global change begins by having informed citizens at the local level. That is why Moblish is working with community news organizations such as El Observador — the largest bilingual newspaper in the Bay Area — to reinvent journalism.

El Observador’s publisher Hilbert Morales wants to reach Hispanics on mobile. Moblish wants to give journalists the tools they need to succeed at delivering community news and empower citizens to leverage the power of the crowd. Together, little steps can lead to profound impact. With this grassroots approach, we plan to go from one community news organization to the next, around the world, to provide an affordable platform that lowers the cost of discovery for news and makes getting high-quality information easier and accessible to all.

As the founder of Moblish, I have over 13 years of journalism experience as a digital editor at NESN.com and ESPN.com. I understand best practices for content publishing in a mobile world and know the pain points from firsthand experience.

I also am an active lifetime member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. I have been involved in student projects, local chapters and regional conference planning. I have learned the value of diverse viewpoints and believe that those who walk through the door of opportunity should open it for others.

I am excited to help reshape the world from the community up and wrote a blog post for the NAHJ site about leading the next advance in journalism.

Moblish is in the running for a NewU seed grant. Please vote for Moblish here.
