As an educator, Dianne knows that access to higher education is vital to the social mobility of the very New Yorkers who have been most impacted by the pandemic, and that CUNY will play a critical role in our city’s recovery. She knows that we can address employment, healthcare needs and education access by simply reimagining how we approach higher education – and the answer is right in front of us: Free CUNY.
The fact is that education should be available to all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status or income. And it’s on us to remove barriers to entry that currently prevent many New Yorkers from attending CUNY, including tuition, fees, food insecurity, unaffordable childcare and lack of language support.
Our budget is our values statement, and fully funding CUNY is our only option. Rush a donation today and your $10 will turn into $90 to help elect the only candidate willing to make the investment in CUNY that our students — and city — deserve.
