that fundamentally affect you and your students could be made at any

from grassroots lobbying. It is extremely important that members contact
Assembly Democrats and State Senate Republicans to ask their support for
CUNY. Stress that state funding for CUNY was cut by over 30% in the
1990s, and that the Assemblyís budget for CUNY represents a minimum
down payment on repairing the damage done.
If you live in
New York City, you can find out who your representatives are on the Web
