All participants in the OJAs are expected to adhere to the high ethical standards that are core to ONA's identity and mission. This means elevating truth above all else. It means treating sources, story subjects and the audience with fairness and dignity. It means avoiding conflicts of interest, and being transparent about them when they exist. And it means prioritizing the safety and well-being of journalists and of members of the public who get swept up in the news.
