Join AAJA on Tuesday, November 29 for #GivingNEWSday, our version of Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back to causes you support. To bring the community together, AAJA will be launching a campaign running through the entire month of November highlighting some of AAJA’s members and programs.
Each day we’ll be highlighting stories that remind us of the power of AAJA and our mission. AAJA’s signature professional, educational and community engagement programs exist thanks to your support and participation.
Help us reach our goal of $15,000 by donating to the Power of One. Your tax-deductible donations help to inspire young people to fulfill their dreams of becoming journalists through our student and professional development programs. Every dollar counts and all proceeds of this campaign will go towards signature programs such as JCamp, VOICES and the Executive Leadership Program. Funds raised will also help support other AAJA programs such as MediaWatch, a program that ensures fair and accurate news coverage of minorities in America. Thanks to support from AAJA members, AAJA recently confronted Watters’ World and FOX News executives about their unfair coverage of Asian American communities in New York’s Chinatown.
