#BREAKING: We’re delivering more than $573 million to communities across the nation that have been ravaged by the opioid crisis and holding @McKinsey accountable for its role in turbocharging this destruction.
For over a decade, McKinsey helped fuel the opioid crisis by promoting marketing schemes and consulting services to opioid makers, including Purdue Pharma.
McKinsey helped Purdue target doctors they knew would overprescribe opioids and made millions off of this harm.
As a result of today’s agreement, New York will receive more than $32 million and McKinsey will never be able to perpetrate this type of fraud and deception again.
This is just the beginning of our fight for justice.

While no amount of money will ever compensate for the pain that countless families have endured, we will continue to do everything in our power to prevent this industry from hooking more patients and causing even more harm.

My office is releasing a report on our ongoing investigations into nursing homes' response to #COVID19 in New York.

We have been investigating allegations of patient neglect and other concerning conduct that may have jeopardized the health and safety of residents and employees.
We found that:
➡️@HealthNYGov's public data undercounted #COVID19 deaths in some nursing homes by as much as 50%
➡️Some nursing homes failed to comply with infection control protocols
➡️Facilities with lower staffing ratings had higher #COVID19 fatality rates
➡️Insufficient PPE and testing for nursing home staff put residents and staff at increased risk
➡️Owners of for-profit nursing homes have a financial incentive to increase their own profits instead of investing in more staff, PPE, and other safety measures

My office stood up to the Trump administration every time it tried to trample the rights of New Yorkers and Americans across the country. 
We worked tirelessly to challenge this administration's illegal attacks — and we successfully stopped some of its most dangerous ones.
We successfully:

✅Protected #DACA and the right of #Dreamers to live here.

✅Preserved the integrity of the #2020Census & stopped the citizenship question.

✅Defended access to the Trusted Traveler Program.

✅Guarded the health coverage of millions who depend on the #ACA.
➡️Took dozens of legal actions to protect the environment, including over 70 actions in 2020 alone.

➡️Stopped attacks on the #USPS and attempts to undermine our election. 
➡️Protected women’s constitutional right to an abortion and reproductive care.

and so much more.

#BREAKING: I’m filing a lawsuit against the New York City Police Department to bring an end to its pattern of repeatedly and blatantly violating the rights of New Yorkers.

No one is above the law — not even the individuals charged with enforcing it.
Our landmark lawsuit outlines the @NYPDnews' years of using excessive force and making false arrests against New Yorkers, most recently during racial justice protests in 2020.

This unlawful conduct has led to severe injuries and violated the basic right to peaceful protest.
The NYPD and its senior leaders failed to address this longstanding pattern of abuse by not properly training, supervising, and disciplining officers to prevent misconduct, despite knowing and publicly admitting that it violated the rights of New Yorkers.

Today, we're going to the Supreme Court to continue our challenge against President Trump's attempt to politicize the #2020Census and exclude undocumented immigrants from the congressional apportionment.

We won't allow this president to put politics above the law.
Hoy, vamos a la Corte Suprema para continuar nuestro desafío contra el intento del presidente Trump de politizar el #Censo2020 y excluir a los inmigrantes indocumentados del reparto del Congreso.

No permitiremos que este presidente ponga la política por encima de la ley.
The Constitution & Census Act are crystal clear — every person residing in the US during the census, regardless of legal status, must be counted.

The president is trying to politicize the census to deny immigrant-rich states, like New York, our fair representation in Congress.
