AAJA has released a pronunciation guide for victims in the Atlanta spa shootings with Chinese-language and Korean-language names.
On behalf of our broadcast members nationwide, the Broadcast Advisory Council of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) urges newsrooms to empower their Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) journalists by recognizing both the unique value they bring to the coverage of the Atlanta shootings and the invisible labor they regularly take on, especially in newsrooms where they are severely underrepresented.
The shootings in Atlanta on March 16 killed eight people. Six of the victims were identified as Asian and seven were women. At least four of those killed were of Korean descent. The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) urges newsrooms to take caution with language in news coverage that could fuel the hypersexualization of Asian women, which has been linked to violence and discrimination.
AAJA-HQ commends journalists who have championed coverage of AAPI experiences during this period of increased anti-Asian incidents
AAJA commends journalists who have championed coverage of our communities by pitching and advocating for the stories of our community to be told. We are thankful to AAPI journalists, who are often exposed to COVID-19 in order to provide news coverage, and affected by the compounding stressors of industry turmoil, life under COVID-19 and being subject to anti-Asian discrimination themselves. We are thankful that their journalism brings context and nuance to a topic that can be difficult to discuss.

The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) condemns the latest incidents of anti-Asian violence across the country and calls on newsrooms to accurately cover such events. These attacks are a part of a disturbing trend of harassment and violence targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, exacerbated by xenophobia and discrimination stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.
