The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational and professional organization with more than 1,500 members across the United States and Asia, with a chapter in Michigan. Since its founding, AAJA has been at the forefront of change in the journalism industry. 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.

Today we are still fighting for more diverse and inclusive newsrooms that are reflective of the communities they cover, resulting in meaningful and culturally competent coverage, and that’s why it’s so important that we help the next generation of journalists. Join us for a feast as we raise money for scholarships to benefit student journalists.
