The yearly meeting's communications have four facets:

New York Yearly Meeting maintains a database of press contacts for major media outlets and several custom lists of contacts in certain areas of concern. We reach out to the press whenever we have something significant and newsworthy to share with the world as a yearly meeting. Very often, the occasion is the approval of a minute of conscience by the gathered body of the yearly meeting.
Local meeting support. If your meeting has a historical milestone, or a significant event or message you want to share more widely in the press, and you would like help with this, please contact the Communications Director or the the office.
