The New York City Grassroots Media Coalition (NYCGMC) is a growing alliance of media makers, artists, independent media organizations and community based organizations. They are interested in working towards a more democratic media in NYC.

NYCGMC uses volunteers for all of its work. They encourage a wide variety of people from all race, class, sexuality, ability, age and gender classes. Diversity is one of their most important proponents of building a strong media justice movement in New York City.

NYCGMC is a branch of Paper Tiger Television (PTTV.) PTTV is also a volunteer-based non-profit organization promoting media literacy, operating since 1981. PTTV believes in increasing public awareness of the negative influences of mass media, and involving community in the media making process.

The main goals of NYCGMC are to strengthen networks of local grassroots media and to serve the communities of New York City.
