CUNY will not last as a university for the working class and POC of this city if tuition continues to raise, public transportation costs continue to raise, facilities continue to crumble, ethnic studies are bled dry of resources and professors, and disabled students aren’t properly accommodated. These are just a handful of the issues at CUNY.

Come build with us towards a free CUNY!
We believe in a Free CUNY! Come to our organizing meeting for a free CUNY campaign. For 130 years CUNY was free! After Black and Latinx students occupied buildings demanding more funding for ethnic studies courses and open admissions tuition was imposed on CUNY newly nonwhite student body. We are a group of students, faculty, and organizers working for the common goal of a free and fully funded CUNY.
