Jerzo's big week

Kudos + congrats to my friend Matt, an occasional Phoenix contributor, who graduates this week from Roger Williams Law School.

The RI Populist was today among the winners of the Metcalf Diversity in Media Award (named for former ProJo publisher Michael Metcalf), which are presented for public-interest reporting by Rhode Island for Community and Justice:

Matt Jerzyk and the Rhode Island's Future blog for "Papitto Whistleblowers Punished"


Demonstrating the power of the internet in advocacy, Matt used his blog to influence change at Roger Williams University. The Rhode Island's Future website consistently addresses human rights issues and advocacy in a medium for the new millennium. 

Ardent Democrat Matt has also been selected to go to the DNC in Denver:

PAWTUCKET - Rhode Island Democratic Party Chairman Bill Lynch congratulated founder Matt Jerzyk [yesterday] on being named to the Democratic National Convention's "State Blogging Corps." One blogger was selected by the DNC from every state to accompany the local delegation to the August nominating convention and offer their unique perspective to online audiences that will be closely reading and watching from home.


"Matt's done a great job helping to bring new people and new ideas into our party. His site has become a must-read for people who follow politics in Rhode Island, and his sincere passion for social justice and equal rights is truly representative of what the Democratic Party has always stood for," Lynch said.
