You are not only supporting the goals and ideals of the Asian American Journalists Association in promoting fair and accurate news coverage, you are also committing yourself to a career that is built on challenges as well as friendships.

AAJA’s mission is four-fold:

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