Why I’m Running
I moved to New York City 25 years ago. I came of age, fell in love, and became a father here. Seeing our City the way it is now breaks my heart.
We need to launch the largest basic income program in history, invest in a human-centered economy, return to fact-based governance, and create an accessible healthcare system. We will move New York forward — together.
The Democratic primary is June 22nd, 2021. I can’t wait for you to join us on our campaign to revive and rebuild our city.
Andrew YangLearn More
You are one of the best big ideas people I know.
Andrew will save our city from the failed politics of the past. Politics as usual in New York City is too small to fit the magnitude of this moment.
His plan to spend one billion dollars to give the poorest New Yorkers thousands of extra dollars is historic. It will be the biggest program of its kind.

Andrew Yang is a fresh voice in the mayoral race who can separate the politics from what will truly benefit New Yorkers as we work to recover from the pandemic.
Mr. Yang has done his homework. He really seemed to have an almost emotional sense of what people have been going through and what the problems are.
The New York Times
Andrew Yang is exactly the kind of progressive leader we need to move this city forward.
