2021-22 Advocate Daniel Villatoro recently traveled to Manchester to receive the "2022 Journalist of the Year Award." He was selected as one of the winners by One Young World
. The award "honors five young leaders - aged 35 and under - who have been judged on the positive social impact of their work. These young leaders fearlessly and boldly inspire others through their work. They have changed the way stories are reported and empower others by giving them a voice."
In his acceptance speech, Daniel said: “We need to accept that journalism has also been a challenging space for the recognition of diversity. As journalists that are LGBT —like me—, people of color or indigenous can tell you, we need journalism to evolve and be more inclusive to portray fairly the world we live in.”
