Ritoban here, I am a freelance science and innovations journalist based in West Bengal, India. I've been a member of this organization for some time but haven't had a lot of opportunities to socialize. I'd love to connect with other journalists coming from or reporting on my country. I'm already part of the Study Hall Listserv, but they don't have a huge number of active members from India. Is there any suggestion you can offer me as to how I can use SAJA to connect with more journalists in my area or other communities I should also join? The pandemic has made it more important than ever to have a support network and I suddenly realize that I don't know anyone from my profession who lives in India. I know my request sounds kind of vague, but any suggestions you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to being an active part of SAJA.
Let us know what you'd like from SAJA to help you during these times. We want you to know that SAJA is committed to helping all its members.
