Governor Hochul, Mayor Adams, and Partnership for New York City launch citywide civic action campaign

Governor Kathy Hochul, Mayor Eric Adams, and the Partnership for New York City today launched “We ♥ NYC,” a civic campaign to showcase the city’s strengths and mobilize New Yorkers in every community to help ensure that New York remains the greatest city in the world and inspire New York City’s post-pandemic resurgence. The citywide campaign will kick-off with a celebration of New Yorkers who are making a difference through community service and will identify volunteer opportunities that everyone can contribute to.

“From its iconic views and vibrant arts and culture to its thriving businesses and world-class cuisine, New York City represents some of the best that our state has to offer,” Governor Hochul said. “This We ♥ NYC campaign will help to capture that energy and preserve the city’s spirit by encouraging New Yorkers of every background to come together, get involved, and make a positive change in their community.”

New York City Mayor Adams said, “This city overcame the darkest days of the pandemic because of the selfless work of everyday New Yorkers, and if each of us gives just one hour a week in an act of service, the result will be transformative. That is why I am proud to announce the launch of ‘We ♥ NYC,’ in partnership with Governor Hochul and the Partnership for New York City. The ‘We ♥ NYC’ campaign asks everyone who loves the greatest city in the world to show it by lending a helping hand and spreading that love to every block across all five boroughs.”

Steven Swartz, CEO of Hearst and immediate past co-chair of the Partnership for New York City said, “New York’s secret sauce has always been the ability of our diverse communities to work together, confidently and with common purpose, to solve problems and navigate change. The broad spectrum of organizations that are lining up to support the We ♥ NYC campaign demonstrates once again how our city’s diversity makes it strong.”
