No two mass shootings are the same, but all of them jar a community’s sense of safety. NYPD and Cure Violence teams are on the ground in Crown Heights working to keep people safe. We won’t rest until we end the scourge of gun violence in New York City.

Our public hospitals serve ALL New Yorkers, particularly those most in need — and now @NYCHealthSystem  can ensure New Yorkers can count on high quality care no matter what.

When we came to office, our city’s jail population was nearly 12,000. Today it’s nearly 7,000. By 2026, it’ll hit just 3,300, we’ll have closed Rikers Island and transitioned to a smaller, safer borough-based jail system.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it until I can’t anymore: we have an epidemic of gun violence that spares no community — and it won’t stop until we get guns off our streets once and for all.

Had a blast playing pick-up softball with the Brooklyn Dirt Hawks at McCarren Park earlier. Maicy Jo and her crew can play with our City Hall team any time!

For decades, conventional wisdom said you could only arrest and imprison your way to a safer city. With crime and incarceration rates at an all time low, we've proven that safety and fairness go hand in hand.

THIS is what I’m talking about when I say there’s plenty of money in the world, it’s just in the wrong hands. It’s not an accident that billionaires are paying less in taxes than the rest of us. It’s an agenda.

@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.
