AAJA’s 2022 in-person convention was in Los Angeles from July 27-30, 2022 at the Sheraton Universal Hotel. After two years of connecting virtually, #AAJA22 was full of reunions and catch-up sessions. With over 1,500 attendees, it was a fruitful and insightful week that brought the community together and provided opportunities for our members to learn and grow. 


“Attending AAJA 2022 reaffirmed the work I am doing as a public radio journalist in the Midwest is valuable. As the only Asian American in my newsroom, it is sometimes hard to know whether I am making a difference. After listening into the #VeryAsian panel, I found my situation to mirror many of my Asian American peers also working in predominantly white newsrooms in the Midwest. I found that after attending AAJA 2022, I was more empowered to challenge myself in my storytelling and more motivated to continue to elevate and amplify APIDA voices.” 

"This was my first AAJA convention and, while I am not a journalist, I found the sessions extremely thought provoking and informational. I was impressed by the quality of the presenters and the diversity of topics.”

“The AAJA community is so wonderful and made me feel so welcome. As a recent immigrant to the US, it made me feel like a part of the community. I hope to be back next year as a volunteer. I get so emotional seeing the warmth given to me by the journalism community here - it’s a welcome change from the fear journalists have back in my home country because of an increasingly authoritarian government.”
