I'm launching an investigation into the NYPD to determine if officers have illegally targeted communities of color on NYC subways through enforcement of fare evasion laws.
If NYers have been targeted because of the color of their skin, we will not hesitate to take legal action.

New Yorkers deserve a safe, reliable transit system free of bias and discrimination.
Our law enforcement is supposed to protect all NYers, not criminalize people of color.
