Mayor's Office of Ethnic & Community Media

New York City is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and the news publications its residents read and consume reflect that diversity.

The Mayor's Office of Ethnic and Community Media (MOECM) promotes City services and programs through partnerships with a diverse array of Ethnic and Community Media outlets and Community Based Organizations/Nonprofits that serve people across the five boroughs.

The MOECM, the first Mayoral Office of its kind in the United States, was established by Local Law 83 of 2021, which requires that Mayoral Agencies spend at least half of their advertising budget on Ethnic and Community Media (ECM) outlets.
