Raise Your Voice: Sign up for the 2019 CKA Media Training

The media needs more diverse sources. Are you one of them?

Join the CKA Media Training, presented by AAJA Media Institute, on Saturday, April 13, 2019 in New York City. AAJA is proud to partner with the Council of Korean Americans, who will host a reception for all participants the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019 at the Korea Society.

This one-day workshop will prepare you to work with the media. Learn how to tell your story and share your expertise. Practice answering tough interview questions. Work one-on-one with a coach so that you can be camera-ready.

Since our inaugural workshop in 2014, AAJA Media Institute alumni have gone on to appear on local and national television, including C-SPAN, MSNBC and NBC's Today Show. They have published editorials. They have been featured in major news publications. And they have contributed to the national debate on healthcare, the economy, politics and more. Are you next?
