What Is The Uptown Eye?
This bilingual, bimonthly newspaper, which began with the May/June 1996 issue and a distribution of 10,000 copies, is the key tool that WE ACT utilizes to communicate with residents and community leaders and inform them of significant quality of life issues impacting Northern Manhattan.

Uptown Eye focuses on environmental issues impacting the Northern Manhattan community. Through in-depth reports, the paper serves as a tool for educating the community about issues including planning and zoning, air and water quality, and to highlight positive neighborhood initiatives. Coverage includes environmental legislative initiatives, resource guides and reports to educate voters on how elected officials are responding to environmental issues.

WE ACT is guided by the principle that environmental and social justice cannot be achieved without a vocal, informed and empowered community expressing its vision of what its community can and should be. An empowered community is one that has the resources, motivation, information and political savvy not only to reject and oppose (which is often necessary) but also to formulate, initiate, and implement its own plans, and to monitor the administration and operation of such initiatives.

The Uptown Eye has proved to be a valuable tool for WE ACT's advocacy and education initiatives. We continue to get calls and comments praising the professionalism and content of the paper.
