Free CUNY! Calls for End to Police Presence in CUNY

BROOKYLN COLLEGE–A small crowd of students and teachers gathered on the steps of the Department of Education Building at 52 Chambers St. on Friday Jan. 31 to advocate for a decreased police presence in schools, and a fully funded CUNY.

The speak-out, organized by the city-based groups The People’s Culture Plan and Free CUNY!, commenced at 9am. The People’s Cultural Plan leader Alicia Grullon led students and supporters as they gathered on and around the stairs holding signs reading “Cops out of CUNY,” and “Cop free school zone,” in a call and response chant.
