We are a professional networking group for journalists. Our goal is to encourage Muslim Americans to enter the ranks of journalism and improve standards of journalistic coverage of Muslims.
The purpose of MAJA is to provide a forum for Muslim journalists to network and share ideas, experiences and advice. It will serve as a resource and mouthpiece for Muslim American journalists as we struggle to develop our unique professional identities.
MAJA is a nonpartisan organization that is open to individuals of any race or ethnic background with a strong interest in promoting fair and accurate coverage of Muslims in the media, and those involved in fields of communications, including journalism, freelance writing, television, radio, newspapers, newsletters, public relations, advertising, marketing, IT communications, public affairs, poetry, fiction writing and non-fiction writing.
