The Rochester Association of
Black Journalists

The Rochester Association of Black Journalists is a chapter of
the National Association of Black Journalists that covers the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.
The organization works to groom future journalists of color, help chapter members thrive in their current roles, and advocate for African-Americans to be depicted in a fair and balanced way in the media.

The ​​ Rochester Association of Black Journalists gives working professionals in the media and communications fields three separate options for joining the chapter.

Students studying journalism or mass communications at an accredited U.S. college or university are asked to complete a student membership form. Professionals working in public relations, graphic design or advertising must complete an associate's membership form. All working journalists in broadcast/film, print, or online media must complete a full membership form.

Each level of membership comes with different membership fees.
