Journalism Activism

Bringing together Arab and Muslim Journalists from around the world
Go to Journalism Equality

Journalism Equality

We demand equality from the News Media. Newspapers like the New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times must hire Arab journalists. Journalism groups like the Society of Professional Journalism and UNITY must end their discrimination against Arab Journalists. Our voices will be heard.

Go to Journalism as a Career

Journalism as a Career

iNAAJA encourages young Arabs and Muslims to pursue journalism as a professional career and to add their voices to the media industry. Women are an integral part of the profession. We defend the rights of journalists to pursue fair, objective news and stories without persecution, abuse or discrimination.

Our conferences allow members and speakers to network, share ideas and writing, spotlight challenges and anti-Arab racism, and augment our voices as integral parts of international journalism.
