Today, I'm sharing my story like I’ve never told it before: It starts right here in NYC, growing up poor & on the brink of eviction. Then at 15, I was the victim of police brutality -- but instead of accepting things as they were, I was determined to change them. https://t.co/Y4GyCNxIdD

This pandemic has challenged all of us in countless ways -- but it takes tremendous courage to speak openly about those challenges & face them head on. Sending you strength and all of my support on this journey. https://t.co/Vs0tEGoKXT

The COVID pandemic has affected people in different ways. I regret to say that I developed a drinking problem. What used to be mainly a social activity, and a way to cope with stress, has now become too frequent and self-destructive.

It was incredible to meet the students and faculty of Manhattan Jewish Day School and hear about their education firsthand. https://t.co/TFCYN44pY0

Next time you’re in Williamsburg, be sure to stop by Napoli Bakery on Metropolitan Ave., a family-owned business that’s been serving the community for nearly 50 years! #SmallBusinessShoutout https://t.co/08Arx7chY0

The video of the shooting of Adam Toledo is horrific—but we cannot turn away. We failed this young man on so many levels. He was just 13-years-old — another life cut short. This has to stop. https://t.co/qGp1bH6uEt

As I told @USAToday: Police departments often know who is & isn't cut out for high-stress roles. Ending police violence begins with taking the bias out of policing -- & having the right officers with the right skills & unbiased mindset on the street. https://t.co/sOc3p5Ijzy

It’s humbling to visit places of faith like the West Side Institutional Synagogue and see people’s commitment to their faith and religion. https://t.co/njd2B8x7PA

On this day in 1947, Jackie Robinson played his first Major League game as a Brooklyn Dodger, breaking the MLB's color barrier and paving the way for future generations of Black athletes around the country. #JackieRobinsonDay

Today, thousands of Jews traveled to Hungary to pray at the gravesite of Rabbi Reb Shaya of Keristir. He was well known for feeding the poor and lifting the downtrodden. We should aspire to continue his legacy by being more giving and helping those in need. https://t.co/Lg4xQomn33

Imagine peeking into an airplane cockpit & not finding a single instrument panel -- no tools to gauge velocity, altitude, etc. You’d get the heck off that plane! Well, the same is true when you're running a complicated piece of machinery called a City. We can’t fly blind. https://t.co/CVMZagqEJ1

Freddy inspired an entire generation of New Yorkers from working class communities and communities of color to enter public service, and I count myself among the many who benefited from the example he set. It's why I'm so grateful for, and humbled by, his support. https://t.co/4XkUpCPxQV

Since today’s still a filing deadline for certain workers, here’s some #TaxDay math: Did you know that under my NYC AID plan, households making $30,000 or less would see their matching EITC from the City boosted to 60% of their federal return? https://t.co/ANqaMG2c9p
