Contributions to PSC/CUNY-COPE have helped to improve our livelihood and work lives; they have advanced policies of equality, dignity, and empowerment for all working people. But the political and social progress we’ve made is now under attack. We must resist in the streets, at the ballot box and in the halls of power. Giving to PSC/CUNY-COPE is one way to empower the resistance.
This November PSC members voted overwhelmingly to elect the candidate we endorsed for Mayor, Bill de Blasio, and to elect the most progressive City Council candidates in many years. Thanks to PSC members like you, we'll have a mayor and council who understand the importance of investing in CUNY. But if we’re going to turn progressive goals into reality, we have to continue the fight, and we have to carry it to Albany.
