The mission of the Asian American Journalists Association is to provide a means of association and support among Asian American and Pacific Islander journalists, provide encouragement, information, advice and scholarship assistance to Asian American and Pacific Islander students who aspire to professional journalism careers, to provide to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community an awareness of news media and an understanding of how to gain fair access, to research and point out when news media organizations stray from accuracy and fairness in the coverage of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
V3 Digital Media Conference or V3con is the only conference presented by Asian American and Pacific Islander bloggers, social media experts, digital media leaders, and story tellers. The conference offers panels, workshops and plenaries designed to educate those interested in the digital media world. Money raised at events funds scholarships for undergraduate and graduate college students, internship stipends for students, recent graduates and beginning journalists; and stipends/subsidies for mid-career journalists to attend professional development programs. We rely on volunteers to lend a hand with blogging, registration, ushering and more. To volunteer, click here.
