Title: Free City College Rally & Lobby Day
Location: SF City Hall Steps, Polk Street Side
Description: Let’s make City College FREE for San Franciscans and those who work in our City! With skyrocketing housing prices in San Francisco, and high student debt, students often face choices between enrollment and rent, between textbooks and groceries. AFT 2121 is working together with a broad coalition of students, labor, community organizations, and City leaders to develop a program to make community college free again—like it was before 1984.
Tuesday, June 28th
NOON Rally on City Hall steps, Polk and Grove.
Lobby supervisors from 12:30pm to 1:30pm
Free City will be publicly funded and cost San Francisco less than $13 million annually. It could be funded by a proposed luxury tax on high end property sales over $5 million. Increasing educational opportunities is a public responsibility and an investment in our future. And let’s help lead a growing national movement for free public higher education!
We are now in a struggle to keep City College of San Francisco open for more than 80,000 students. We need your help!
Start Time: 12:00
