A People’s Budget, A People’s CUNY

March from LaGuardia Community College to CUNY School of Law 

Saturday, December 11, 11AM

It's time for a New Deal for CUNY and a budget that's worthy of CUNY, a people's university. Time to end the racialized austerity and tuition hikes, the faculty and staff shortages, and the adjunct exploitation.

Time to show up — in person! — for #APeoplesCUNY and a #NewDeal4CUNY. 

 

So we can text you about the event.
