National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ)
The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) at LMU is a student-led chapter forming part of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists organization. In addition to providing our students with leadership experience, the chapter also provides opportunities for students to host events, collaborate on projects, participate in trainings, and network with professionals throughout greater Los Angeles. Our goal is to support Hispanic/Latinx students in the study and practice of journalism and to elevate Hispanic/Latinx voices and issues in the media.
National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ)
The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) offers innovative training, career advancement opportunities and advocacy initiatives for Black journalists and media professionals worldwide. LMU's student-led chapter strives to prepare minority students for a career in journalism or media with the goal of ensuring diversity and inclusion in the industry.
Society of Prefessional Journalists (SPJ)
SPJ's chapters are the backbone of the Society. Our local chapter invites students to engage in a high level of journalism right in our own community. SPJ is a resource for networking; obtaining valuable training from industry experts on the local, regional and national level; mentoring; and engaging with other journalists nationwide on topics that are the foundation of our Democratic society — Freedom of Information and First Amendment rights. SPJ is empowered to fight for the protection of all journalists through the strong leadership and participation of its nearly 250 local chapters.
