Why Are We Neglecting a Precious Resource?

Why Are We Underfunding The City University Of New York?

Hello Bronx Progressives! Hope you're all having an awesome November ahead of the holidays, and staying healthy and safe! It's been a while since we last connected. 

As those that have been with us since last September (last year), when a working group was formed to reactivate Bronx Progressives, we've face enormous challenge taken on this effort for many reasons. Some within our control; some outside our control. Nonetheless, the working group has remained adamant and committed during this time, with figuring out what comes next for us, and making sure we continue thriving. 

As this year comes to a close, we invite you to join us to learn about what 2022 has in store for our progressive movement in the Bronx. In partnership with Concerned Citizens for Change, we're excited to collaborate on organizing this joint meeting, where we will discuss campaign plans to take on and exciting news about what's coming in 2022!

For over 150 years free tuition at CUNY was a right for NYC residents. Opportunity for all was a reality and countless New Yorkers found a path out of poverty through the university system. That is no longer true. And, these days staffing needs at the CUNY are ignored while its physical plant is allowed to deteriorate.

Restoring the City University of New York to the treasured status it once held would give us a powerful way to fight economic and social inequality. It would no only benefit the students pursuing their education there, it would benefit all New Yorkers by enriching the city. It should be a key part of plans to rebuild New York after the pandemic.
