About SAJA

SAJA, the South Asian Journalists Association, is one of the most dynamic journalism organizations in the U.S. and Canada. It serves as a network for education, inspiration and training for South-Asian journalists in America and those covering South Asia and South Asian diaspora. SAJA aims to upgrade the coverage of South Asia and uplift the standards of journalism. Founded in March 1994 with 18 members, today it connects and serves more than 1,000 journalists at news outlets, big and small. SAJA has members spread across North America. Over the years, SAJA has given out more than $400,000 in scholarships and fellowships. SAJA does all this with NO paid staff. Its volunteers - from  elected board members to chapter coordinators to individuals helping with various events - make SAJA possible.

To achieve SAJA’s mission more effectively, SAJA helped in the formation of SAJA Group, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.  SAJA and SAJA Group, Inc. jointly plan and execute SAJA programming and events.
