Community and Ethnic Media

Executive Order 47 requires City agencies, along with the NYC Department of Education, NYC Health + Hospitals, and NYCHA, to spend a significant portion of their advertising budgets in on-line and print media that reaches communities, such as ethnic and other minority communities, specific neighborhoods and boroughs, and residents who read in languages other than English.

DREAMing Out Loud: Voices of Undocumented Students

DREAMing Out Loud is a tuition-free writing workshop for undocumented immigrants led by award-winning authors that is designed to help build a diverse talent pipeline for the publishing industry and empower DREAMers to use their voices to counter misinformation about immigrants. The workshop series was the recipient of a Mayor's Grant for Cultural Impact this year from the Department of Cultural Affairs and supported in part by the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment.
