Maya Wiley is a civil rights lawyer, a changemaker, and a mom. She's running to reimagine our city so it works for everyone. Vote early through Sunday, June 20 or on Election Day, June 22.

Maya’s vision to build a better New York City

We all love New York City — the energy, the people, the diversity, the nightlife, the culture. So why does it have to be so hard to get by and raise a family here? If this is truly going to be the greatest city on earth, then it’s also got to be the greatest place to live.

The greatest place to live has affordable housing. It actually keeps kids safe. It has excellent schools. It’s a place where families can afford care, and care workers can afford to raise their own families. It’s a place where small businesses thrive and immigrants are welcomed with open arms.

With courageous leadership, we have a chance to not just come back from this crisis but actually fix what’s broken, and rebuild as a stronger, more equitable, and a better New York City

I am running for mayor to make sure that we don’t just hand the keys over to Wall Street or Big Tech, but build a recovery that lifts up all of our communities. I am running for mayor to make sure our budget reflects our values, not a blank check to the NYPD. I am running to make sure that all of our kids are given a chance to succeed. I’d be honored to have your #1 vote.
