Meet us virtually at #AAJA20: August 9-15, 2020.

As much as we want to see everyone in person this summer, we want everyone to be safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. So we’re going virtual.

The onset of the pandemic and the potential second waves made us consider: How do we keep everything we love about #AAJA20 while prioritizing safety and being financially responsible? How do we bring visibility to our work, our journalists and our community when we can’t see each other in person? 

Of course, our virtual gathering will have the cornerstones of convention: training, networking and community. 

But we also know it’s been quite a year. So we want to create a space for our #AAJAFamily to process the immense pains from this year, find comfort in our community, and find solutions for bringing more visibility to our communities and our journalism for the rest of 2020 and beyond. 

And after being isolated at home for 100+ days, we want to have fun, too! (Yes, as promised, there will be karaoke.) 

So this year, #AAJA20 will be an AAJA Fest: A reckoning and a celebration of all that 2020 has brought our way.
