“A Free Press is Essential to Democracy”: SAAHJ selling pro-journalism pins, postcards

The San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists is selling “A Free Press is Essential to Democracy” pins created by San Antonio artist/illustrator Imelda Robles.

Lapel pins are $10 each. A $15 package consists of the pin and two postcards, suitable for framing.

One postcard depicts the “Free Press” message, the second features the words in the First Amendment.

They’ll be on sale during the 2017 Gridiron Show.

Robles is the former Express-News features designer behind a series of doodles featured on Facebook over the last two years.

The typewriter illustration also was featured on SAAHJ’s gala program in August.

Pins and postcards will be on sale at the Gridiron Show on Saturday, Sept. 30, and from SAAHJ before and after the show. Email requests to saahj@sahispanicjournalists.com.
