The Greater Dayton Association of Black Journalists

The purpose of the GDABJ is to promote and encourage journalism as a career for blacks and other minorities. We will work closely with other NABJ chapters and media organizations in the Miami Valley to sponsor activities and events that will fulfill our purpose.

Some of our goals are to:

1.) Foster excellence amongst our members.


2) Recruit, support and retain black and other minority journalists in the Miami Valley.


3) Expand and balance the coverage of minority communities in the Miami Valley.


4) Work with media management to make news coverage inclusive of, and relevant to, the black and minority communities and to sensitize them to institutional racism.


5) Seek and identify scholarships, fellowships, internships and job opportunities for members and area journalism students.
