As part of the community outreach project Talking Transition, the Center for Community and Ethnic Media at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism will host the panel discussion “Engaging New York’s Immigrant Communities Through Ethnic Media.”

The event will take place Tuesday, November 12 at noon, in the pop-up Talking Transition Tent on Canal Street and Sixth Avenue at Duarte Square.

Joe Wei, editor of the Chinese daily World Journal, Juan Guillen, founder and publisher of LatinTrends, Garry Pierre-Pierre, executive director of the Center for Community and Ethnic Media, and Maite Junco, editor of Voices of NY, will partake in the panel. The discussion will highlight the importance of ethnic media as well as make proposals to the next administration about how ethnic media can be better integrated into the mayor’s outreach.

Talking Transition is a grass-roots endeavor aimed at inspiring a wide swath of New Yorkers to be vocal about their needs and desires for the city’s next mayoral administration. The initiative is supported by the New York Community Trust, the Ford Foundation, Open Society Foundations, the Charles H. Revson Foundation and other nonprofit organizations.

From now until November 23, the Talking Transition Tent will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and will host a number of community organizations including Make the Road NY, The New York Immigration Coalition, VOCAL NY, and Community Food Advocates. Panels and discussions will center around affordable housing, food justice, immigrant integration, AIDS prevention and more.

A town hall-style meeting will culminate the two weeks of discussion on November 23 at 2 p.m. The open discussion will touch on policy concerns and issues that have emerged as top priorities for New Yorkers.

Beyond the tent, a mobile team of Talking Transition canvassers garbed in orange slickers will roam four of the city’s boroughs inviting New Yorkers to participate in a mobile survey. The survey is also available online. For more information visit the website.
