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 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 $200,000 in scholarships and fellowships. All of this SAJA does with NO paid staff. Its volunteers - from the elected board to chapter coordinators to individuals helping with various events - make SAJA possible.
SAJA serves as a networking and resource forum for journalists and its mission includes acting as a resource to promote accurate coverage of South Asia and the diaspora.
To achieve SAJA’s mission more effectively, in 2003, SAJA helped in the formation of SAJA Group, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and jointly they execute SAJA programming and events.
All of this SAJA does with NO paid staff. Its volunteers - from the elected board to chapter coordinators to individuals helping with various events - make SAJA possible. Also critical to its success: its many supporters. As a tiny nonprofit, it depends on members, friends and companies to donate money for its various activities.
You can contribute by making a donation online (or by check payments).
Another way to support SAJA is to become a paid member.
The Executive Committee is responsible for the day-to-day operations of SAJA, and reports to the SAJA Board. For more on SAJA's functioning, see its Bylaws.
