Since 1996, Arizona’s AAJA chapter has provided scholarships for students, professional development for journalists and service to the community in the Southwest.
The Arizona chapter promotes the association’s three-part mission:
- To encourage young Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders to enter the ranks of journalism.
- To promote fair and accurate coverage of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
- To increase the number of Asian American and Pacific Islander journalists and news managers in the industry.
AAJA Arizona’s members work throughout the state in print, television, radio and online media.
