This Independence Day, Military Veterans in Journalism celebrates the unwavering spirit of freedom and liberty that defines our country. Our community of veterans and military spouses continue their service to the American people every day by upholding and participating in the free press, and MVJ remains steadfast in our mission to support every member of our community in their careers. We are pleased to announce that Military Veterans in Journalism will provide a free year of membership to veterans and military spouses who join our community during the week of Independence Day.
“We’ve seen the outsized impact MVJ’s programs have had on our members’ careers and growth,” said MVJ President Russell Midori. “And we’ve also seen our members’ impact on the newsrooms we’ve partnered with. We want to ensure that all veterans and spouses who need these resources to jump-start their careers can take full advantage of them.”
It typically costs $30 for a professional journalist to join the organization, but any new members who sign up from July 3 through July 7 are eligible to take advantage of this opportunity. Once veterans or spouses become members, they receive access to robust resources to support their career growth. These include exclusive job opportunities and paid internships and fellowships in local and national newsrooms, hiring and networking events and webinars, access to fully funded basic and advanced journalism training and certification programs, and a widely praised mentorship program that pairs world-class, highly experienced journalists with members.
To get a free year through this promotion, go to the MyMVJ membership page linked below and choose the “Membership Promotion” option. We look forward to welcoming more military veterans and family members into our community and honoring the spirit of American democracy.
