Students STAND UP at York College against racism, tuition hikes, bigotry, and more

A new student organization has been launched at York College called S.T.A.N.D.U.P (Students Together Against Neglecting Democracy & Uniting The People). According to the group’s Facebook page

Our purpose is to promote awareness and educate our campus and community about the issues that face our college campus as well as issues that face our community like racism, tuition hikes, bigotry etc. We encourage acceptance, of all people and strive for activism on and off campus. We intend to do this by organizing panels, forums, speak outs, and other mediums to get the message of consciousness, collectivism, unity out to the CUNY YORK COLLEGE student body.
