ohman-rfk-cartoon

Jack Ohman, editorial cartoonist for The Oregonian has been honored as this year’s recipient of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award in the category of editorial cartooning. The judges wrote that Jack’s “cartoons tackle a range of difficult topics including poverty and unemployment in Oregon, the practice of shuffling Oregon teachers suspected of molesting children to other schools, rising college tuition costs, and human rights in China. From civil rights to the election of our nation’s first black President, from ethanol to the struggles of American families in the economic downturn, his graphic journalism on behalf of the downtrodden exudes an insightful sensitivity.”

Jack will receive the award during a ceremony on May 28th in Washington D.C.
