10/04/2011 02:02

The National Association of Black Journalists, Inc. (NABJ) has announced its withrawal from UNITY - Journalists of Color Alliance Inc.


In a press statement made available, the NABJ, noted that though being a founding organization of UNITY, it had voted to discontinue its participation in the organization.



According to the release, the NABJ remained committed to "the coalition's mission of achieving parity in newsroom employment and accurate coverage of people of color."


The board of the NABJ reasoned that as a business model, UNITY was no longer "the most financially prudent for NABJ and its membership." 


The NABJ noted that with the support of members of the Founders' Task Force and Council of Presidents, it would withdraw from UNITY and its 2012 convention, and would hold its own convention in 2012.


The release concluded that: "As the largest organization of journalists of color, NABJ remains vigilantly committed to the common ideals for which UNITY was founded, and further, remains allied with each UNITY partner in its individual mission of achieving these goals."
