Asian Americans Journalists Association

The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is a membership nonprofit advancing diversity in newsrooms, and ensuring fair and accurate coverage of communities of color. AAJA was founded in 1981 by a small group of AAPI journalists who felt a need to support one another and to encourage more Asian American and Pacific Islanders to pursue journalism at a time when there were few AAPI faces in the media.

Why We Invested

The Asian American Journalists Association is a longstanding journalism membership organization that advocates for inclusive and diverse newsrooms and supports journalists from historically marginalized communities through various programming and trainings. Their work is crucial to building a more equitable media landscape that serves and reflects the diverse communities of our country.
