"Represent NYC" is a weekly program produced by Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) that gives local elected officials and candidates the chance to update voters about the issues shaping the future of the city, and how they'll deliver on campaign promises. The show features a rotating cast of leaders and guests discussing pressing topics like affordable housing, education policy and domestic violence. "Represent NYC" evolved out of Race2Represent, a multimedia initiative MNN introduced in 2013 to provide quality, uncensored, hyperlocal coverage of NYC elections.
"Represent NYC" airs Sundays at 7:00 pm with a repeat on Wednesdays at 9:00 pm on MNN1 (TWC 34, RCN 82, FiOS 33). All programs will stream live online.
