Our city isn’t just painting the words on Fifth Avenue. We’re committed to the meaning of the message. #BlackLivesMatter

Our police force is at its best when it reflects the people of the city it serves. Change is coming. Congratulations, Chief Harrison!

How do we curb the upsurge of violence we see in our communities? By working WITH our communities.

We have a lot to do to heal the relationship between police and the community. That starts with standing together and advancing reforms, but it also means we cannot accept violence against our police officers.

New Yorkers never give up. There’s still so much work to do, but this is something to be proud of — and it happened because of you.

Davell Gardner, Jr. was just starting his life. It was full of possibility. Gun violence is a national tragedy. We cannot allow it to happen on our streets and to our children.


@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.

I spoke with @elonmusk  late last night. He’s donating hundreds of ventilators to New York City and State, including our public hospitals. We’re deeply grateful. We need every ventilator we can get our hands on these next few weeks to save lives.

My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.

This morning we committed to move resources from the NYPD to youth and social services as part of our City’s budget. Our young people need to be reached, not policed. We can do this AND keep our city safe.

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

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

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

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.
