CUNY for the People

We are an alliance of Students, workers and communities fighting for a free and quality CUNY

We are built on CUNY’s history as an engine of social change, a home to radical educators, and a vibrant community of student activists - find out what makes CUNY Rising unique.


We Demand ASAP for all CUNY Students

Every CUNY student deserves free tuition, individualized advising and faculty mentoring, free MetroCards and free textbooks - by expanding and strengthening ASAP we can make this a reality.


Anyone can see it with their eyes how poorly CUNY is funded and it is a shame.

- Andrea Disalvio of Brokelyn College Campaign
