The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is an organization of journalists, students and media-related professionals that provides quality programs and services to and advocates on behalf of black journalists worldwide. Many of NABJ’s members also belong to one of the professional and student chapters that serve black journalists nationwide. Please help the UT chapter of NABJ raise funds to further our message to UT students and provide insightful and engaging programming.
Throughout the school year UT NABJ hosts various panels and workshops to students pertaining to the various facets of the media field. At these events we try to provide food and other tools to enhance our members experiences. Students are able to come in contact with professionals from organizations such as The Texas Tribune, Texas Monthly, The Daily Dot and KUT 90.5.
National NABJ Membership
Founded by 44 men and women on December 12, 1975, in Washington, D.C., the NABJ is the largest organization of journalists of color in the nation. Students who decide to apply to national membership for NABJ, must pay a yearly membership fee of $40. The benefits of becoming a national member include exclusive opportunities to scholarship, internship and fellowship opportunities. Your donation would help NABJ dedicate some of its funds to members who are unable to pay the $40 fee to the national chapter and reap the unique benefits it has to offer.
National NABJ Conference
Every year the national chapter of NABJ hosts a conference bringing together members from across the nation from universities and some of the top media organizations. This conference is where connections are made and networking thrives. However, the costs to attend is over $200 and that doesn’t include airfare, food and hotel costs. UT NABJ would love to alleviate some of this financial burden for UT members to help them take advantage of the wonderful opportunities the national convention provides. Your donation would go toward helping UT students attend a future NABJ Conference at a more affordable rate.
