Help Journalists Affected by Katrina

The Council of National Journalism Organizations, of which ASBPE is a member, has compiled a list of journalism organizations that have set up funds to help victims of the hurricane. Most are collecting funds to help their members who have been affected by the hurricane; the Society of Professional Journalists and its Sigma Delta Chi Foundation is making $250 grants to journalism students, members or not, who are forced to relocate to another college or university because of Hurricane Katrina. The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma has information on its Web site on trauma suffered by journalists who cover disasters and on how journalists may apply for relief aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
