Rally to Make the CUNY School System Sanctuary at CUNY Headquarters in New York


December 8th marks a month since the night of the elections. While many of the City University of New York (CUNY) students have been living with anxiety and fear of what the future holds for them, CUNY has not taken a stance to protect its large undocumented community. 

CUNY- starting with The City College of New York (CCNY), was funded with the values of helping immigrants and minorities succeed and gave many the opportunity of having a college education; this was a big challenge to the status quo during its time. 

Today, we demand that CUNY reflects on those values and make them stronger than ever. We ask CUNY to stand up and protect the community of undocumented students against the offensive rhetoric that president-elect Donald Trump has pledge to act upon once reaching office on January 20th. As well as maintain a safe learning environment for ALL its students by becoming a sanctuary university as many colleges and universities across the nation have already done so. 

We bring forth many petitions, written by students, to make their individual college a sanctuary campus. However, we urge CUNY to lead by example, as an umbrella for these individual colleges, to stand up, protect, and continue challenging the status quo in order to keep on incubating some of the sharpest minds in the nation.
