May Day (also known as International Workers’ Day) has historically been a celebration of labor and a day to protest capitalist exploitation. CUNY May Day aims to link the fight for a People’s CUNY to the working class struggle more broadly. A People’s CUNY is a fully funded and fully staffed CUNY, a CUNY that’s completely free for all students and that pays all of its employees a living wage. We know that we will not win a People’s CUNY without a People’s struggle. Join us Monday, May 1st on this day of working class celebration and solidarity to fight for the CUNY we all deserve!
Above, you can find information about the events we’re planning City-wide and resources for talking to your classmates, colleagues, and students about May Day and the struggle for a People’s CUNY.
