About Us

The Asian American Journalists Association’s mission is four-fold:

  • To provide a means of association and support among Asian American and Pacific Islander journalists.
  • To provide encouragement, information, advice and scholarship assistance to Asian American and Pacific Islander students who aspire to professional journalism careers.
  • To provide to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community an awareness of news media and an understanding of how to gain fair access.
  • To research and point out when news media organizations stray from accuracy and fairness in the coverage of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
