Sure! NewsGuild is part of the Communication Workers of America and represents people in the news industry.
The News Media Guild is a local of NewsGuild that represents employees of several wire services (including The Associated Press, where I work) and The Guardian US.
I'm the Guild's point of contact for AP staffers who are based in Chicago—so I answer questions, encourage people to join, and raise concerns with managers here if needed.

Hey. HEY. Listen up, people doing hobby stuff.
If you share your work, it's okay to want to get paid for it.
Even if it's stuff you give away in other forms or to individuals. Even if it's built on the free work of others. As long as you're not violating a license somewhere, you do nothing wrong by charging to cover your costs working on things, or building things, or maintaining things, or creating things.
We all need to get by. Giving stuff away is great. It's not *required.*

Anybody have any recommendations for accessible (specifically fully-captioned) training resources for becoming a linux sysadmin?
A coworker who is deaf is interested in learning more, and we're having trouble finding professional, comprehensive resources for him.
Speaking of DIY skills and such, I think soap and bread are two of the top "it's easier* than it sounds" things you can make and enjoy a direct, material benefit from.
For example, I used to think you needed a bread machine to make bread. Then I realized, "That can't be right. People have made bread for thousands of years."
I think the process of making things like that has become kind of obscured from us in modern life. But you really can just go out and Make A Thing.
There's ethical uses to analytics. It can be super important to a business and dictate how they spend their money, and help ensure they don't spend frivolously and eventually cost people jobs. I like being paid. It puts food on the table. That means ensuring I work efficiently and don't waste man hours on features no one are interested in
