Website NYC Mayor's Office
The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) promotes the well-being of immigrant communities by recommending policies and programs that facilitate successful integration of immigrant New Yorkers into the civic, economic, and cultural life of the City. MOIA is one of the lead agencies for IDNYC, New York City’s successful municipal ID program, and is spearheading a number of initiatives to expand access to justice for immigrant communities.
The work of the Office cuts across a broad range of issues citywide—for example, workers’ rights, health equity, and language access—and MOIA works closely with sister cities around the country to promote immigration reform. The We Are New York (WANY) program helps immigrant New Yorkers learn English while learning about City Services through volunteer-led community classes using the Emmy Award-winning television show “We Are New York.”
Classes are held at diverse locations such as public schools, community libraries, and community and faith based organizations. The program is centered on the principle that New Yorkers can work together across ethnic lines to access City resources and solve common problems. In doing so, the program fosters and empowers communities and enhances the public capacity for civic engagement.

MOIA is seeking a self-motivated individual whose primary responsibility will be to coordinate the creation of new WANY materials and programming, and serve as the liaison between the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs and external partners assisting in the creation of new program content.
