Formed in 1973, PABJ is the founding chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), which today boasts more than about 3,300 members worldwide. Locally, the chapter has 150+ active members. PABJ has won national honors as 2008, 2010, and 2014 NABJ “Chapter of the Year.”
This rich history & size allows us to serve as advocates for newsroom diversity and fair coverage of communities of color. We serve this mission through our awards programs, training institutes and signature community programs like our renowned Media Access Workshop. We’re are always welcoming of partnerships and sponsorships that help us advance and continue our mission of advocacy.
In 2019, PABJ launched a first-of-its-kind residency at Pipeline Philly, a co-working space next to City Hall. It is the cornerstone of PABJ’s new focus on supporting Black content creators & media entrepreneurs. Beyond newsroom diversity, our communities benefit best when we own the stories that get told and shared about us.
