“New York City is stronger when we prioritize racial justice and confront long-standing structural and systemic inequities that impact New Yorkers. The appointments of Sideya Sherman as Chief Equity Officer and MOERJ Commissioner and Linda Tigani as Chair and Executive Director of the Commission on Racial Equity are important steps forward to address racial disparities in our city. I look forward to working with them to create a more just and equitable city for all.”
