EMPOWERING FOREIGN JOURNALISTS IN THE UNITED STATES
The original Association of Foreign Press Correspondents in the United States (1918-1939) was founded in New York by foreign media representatives in the United States to protect the independence of the press across the globe.
The Association of Foreign Correspondents in the United States (AFC United States) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization founded in 2019 and inspired by the principles of the original organization with an expanded mandate and mission to reflect the modern needs of the international journalists in the United States. The main body of our new organization is represented only by professional journalists who live and work in the country as foreign correspondents.
In the 21st century, the AFC United States was created to transform the movement of foreign correspondents in the United States and be their authentic voice of representation addressing and equipping them with greater access to informational resources, diversified skills, advanced knowledge seminars as well as networks of experts and enabling them to better serve their profession in the country.
Committed to writing a new chapter in the history of the foreign correspondents in the United States, our organization does not claim any history or ties with any previously existing or presently existing entity representing foreign press representatives in the United States.
