NYC Mayor Adams announces findings of Social Justice Commission report, signs order
Mayor Eric Adams signed an executive order Monday relating to a report outlining a set of recommendations related to social justice reform.
The report focuses on high-priority subjects such as economic development, climate change, education, Rikers Island, policing and more. The executive order signed by the mayor leans on protecting and facilitating free speech and transparency.
“We are proud to sign this order re-committing the city to the principles of the First Amendment and look forward to reviewing these recommendations in further detail as we govern and develop new policies to serve New Yorkers," Adams said in a statement.
“The report and its 81 recommendations are a framework for governing through the prism of social justice,” said civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel.
The commission completed the report in December. The first recommendation from the report focuses on an executive order aimed at reinforcing city agencies’ existing obligations to share information and adhere to the First Amendment.
