Ethnic Media Services works to enhance ethnic news outlets’ capacity to inform their audiences nationwide about broad, timely public issues in order to build a more inclusive participatory democracy. For ethnic media sector reporters it convenes weekly online briefings with experts, newsmakers and community organizers; organizes professional trainings; provides fellowships; and helps those furloughed by the pandemic remain in the field. It coordinates public service ad campaigns to ensure a more equitable investment of ad revenues in the ethnic media sector, including outlets missed by mainstream agencies. EMS produces, translates and syndicates multilingual original news stories, and develops communication projects with underserved groups to expand their public voice. EMS counts more than 2,000 ethnic media outlets in its directory.

We know that you have many choices when it comes to how you spend your money. We thank you for choosing to entrust some of it to us so we can continue to inform and educate audiences through ethnic media outlets on the most important issues of the day.
