Join us as we present the family of Detective Luis Alvarez with a Key to the City.

While the one percent continues to profit, the working people who do the real work of creating that wealth aren't guaranteed even ONE day off. It's about time we give something back. It's about time we value our workers. #ItsAboutTime  for Paid Personal Time.

Today an NYPD officer put herself in harm’s way to protect a fellow New Yorker in need. Her injuries are not life threatening, but this city will be with her every step of the way as she makes her recovery.

We have a chance to reach our children and start changing their lives. We have a chance to create the kind of momentum that takes them down the right path for the rest of their lives. It's called 3-K for All. And it's already changing lives in our city.

Our rent freeze programs have kept tens of thousands of New Yorkers in their homes — and in their city. We're about go even further.

Lou Alvarez was a man of conscience. That made him a great police officer and a great advocate for his fellow 9/11 first responders. His fight will save the lives of people he never had the chance to meet. This city can never fully repay him — but we will never forget him.

There's no room for hate in this city. NONE. Thank you to the NYPD for this swift arrest. To everyone in the @pridecenterSI  community: your city stands with you.

Too many New Yorkers know they're sick but they don't have health insurance and don't know where to turn. So they get sicker and sicker until too often a situation that could have been prevented winds up in an emergency room. #NYCCare  will give them somewhere to turn.


@jairbolsonaro  if you want to barge into our city and brag about destroying our environment or how you’re a “proud homophobe” then New Yorkers are going to call you on your crap. If it’s “radical” to stand up against your destructive ideology, then we’re PROUD radicals.

Jair Bolsonaro is a dangerous man. His overt racism, homophobia and destructive decisions will have a devastating impact on the future of our planet. On behalf of our city, thank you to for canceling this event.

Men who don’t like women taking up space are exactly why we need the Fearless Girl.

Mayor Sadiq Khan is doing an extraordinary job supporting Londoners in a time of pain. President Trump's attack on him is unacceptable.

Dear @POTUS , The ultimate city of immigrants just had its safest 3 months in modern history. Stop vilifying our people. Thanks, NYC

We warned you not to threaten our neighbors, @realDonaldTrump . New York City will fight to defend our Dreamers.

This week I told President-elect Trump that there are 900 Muslim Americans in the NYPD protecting us every day.

The difference is that I’m not lying when I say it.

The New Yorkers standing against your un-American executive orders aren't paid thugs. But good to know you're hearing us.
