NEW YORK – Today, New York City mayoral candidate Maya Wiley released two new ads, one in English and Spanish entitled, “Tuesday” and “Nuestro Momento”. The :30 second ads tout Maya’s endorsements from Latino and Latina leaders throughout the city, including Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez, Assembly Members Maritza Davila and Nathalia Fernández, Senator Julia Salazar, and Congressman Adriano Espaillat. The ads also highlight Maya’s Universal Community Care plan that will provide $5,000 grants for the 100,000 most in-need New York City families and Maya’s vision to make the city more affordable for all of our families.

“Maya Wiley will be a champion for every New Yorker in this city, no matter where they come from, what language they speak, how much money they have, or what they look like,” said Campaign Manager Maya Rupert. “Throughout this campaign, Maya has made it clear that she has the plans to take care of our families, support care work, and invest in our communities, but don’t ask Maya. Look at the people who have endorsed her. Leaders from across this city are excited for her to be mayor because they know one thing: she will get it done.”

Earlier in the campaign, Maya Wiley announced her plan to jump-start the City’s economy with a Universal Community Care model that will rebuild economic growth in sectors dominated by women of color, especially Latinas, address the crisis of affordable childcare and eldercare, and provide fair wages and protections for care economy workers. Wiley’s plan will give primary caregivers an annual income to compensate them for their labor; create neighborhood centers that provide childcare, eldercare, and other critical services; and increase worker protections for those caring for our City. In addition, Maya’s New Deal New Yorkplan to save small businesses, and housing plan for a just and livable city will expand affordable housing, protect our businesses, grow our economy, and bring down the cost of living in New York City.
