UNITY Journalists Seeks New Executive Director
Do you have nonprofit management experience and a proven track record of fundraising and coalition building?
UNITY: Journalists for Diversity is hiring. Come work with an organization that advocates for media diversity on behalf of the Asian American Journalists Association, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the Native American Journalists Association and the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association.
Final countdown for the 2012 AAJA Men of Broadcast calendar: It’s the bonus month of January 2013, featuring Kenny Choi, Anish Shroff, Sean Dobie and Frank Buckley.
AAJA doesn’t have a full 2013 calendar for sale, so you should check out the nice work of Native American Journalists Association photographers.
And you can help AAJA any day of the year by making a tax-deductible contribution.
What a tragedy. My sympathies for our friends at the Native American Journalists Association.
