Residents of New York State deserve and need access to technology & media education to fully participate in democracy in a digital age. Public Educational & Governmental Access Television (PEG Access) allows us to share information that impacts our communities, connects us with our elected leaders, and provides an important democratic forum.
The Alliance for Community Media New York is the NY State Chapter of the Alliance for Community Media (ACM). The ACM is a national not-for-profit organization with a mission to advance democratic ideals by ensuring that people have access to electronic media, and by promoting effective communication through community uses of media. ACMNY is part of the Northeast region of the Alliance. ACM-NE includes Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont and Rhode Island.
The Empire State has a population of more than 19 million people in 62 counties, 62 cities, 553 villages and 932 towns. We look forward to working together with all, as we provide information, advocacy, and media resources to our communities in this great State.
To get a perspective of how important Community Media is, and to get an understanding of what needs to be done to ensure that it has the funds to continue on, we invite you to download the
