During the depths of the Great Depression, CUNY students were starving, and they responded by demanding government support for all young people throughout the country. On a local level they fought the fee hikes at City and Brooklyn Colleges. As part of a national movement they launched a campaign against militarization, opposing the CCC work camps and demanding instead an expansion of the National Youth Administration (NYA).
