In unison, the executive leadership of Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists (PABJ), is issuing a formal statement of protest to the National Association of Black Journalists’ (NABJ) Executive Board regarding the site selection process and subsequent discussions relating to the 2023 & 2025 bids. We affirm the right of any board to make it own sound business decisions.

This statement specifically objects to actions & conduct of members of the NABJ Board who diminished and denounced the efforts of the Philadelphia bid with inaccurate and false statements regarding our offer.

Those actions were distasteful, unprofessional and sullied the hard work of our chapter members and partners.
