Postcard Campaign Supporting the Maintenance of Effort Bill

Help Get 100,000 Students to Urge the Governor to Sign the MOE Bill

The PSC is working closely with the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG), New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) and United University Professions (UUP) to collect 100,000 postcards signed by CUNY and SUNY students in support of the Maintenance of Effort (MOE) bill (S281a/A5370a). The MOE bill was passed by the Legislature last June and is awaiting the governor’s signature. Our goal is to get 40,000 cards signed by CUNY students. Contact your chapter chair to get involved in the campaign, and make sure any signed cards that you collect get returned to your chapter leaders. The coalition will deliver the postcards to the governor's office at a public event in late November, so we need to keep track of every one of them.
