Our Build Your Own Ethics Code project is designed to help news organizations, educators, small startups and individual bloggers create codes of ethics that reflect journalism practices in the digital age.

ONA’s Legal Affairs Committee works with the Board of Directors to formulate the organization’s position on legal issues that impact our members and the digital journalism community. The committee reviews lawsuits with an eye toward joining, either as a party or as an amicus (or “friend of the court”), as well as proposed briefs and legislation that may affect how journalists do their jobs. Learn more about the committee’s recent and past work on behalf of ONA members.

The MJ Bear Fellowships identify and celebrate early-career digital journalists, working independently or for a company or organization, who have demonstrated — through professional experimentation, research or other projects — that they deserve support for their efforts and/or vision. Learn more about the fellows and details on how to apply.
