CUNY to Charles Schumer: Vote Against DeVos

This petition had 1,149 supporters

We call upon New York Senator and Democratic Minority Leader Charles Schumer to vote against the appointment of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.

As members of the extended community of the City University of New York—an institution that has been providing access and education to immigrants, working- and middle-class people, and people of color for decades—we believe that Ms. DeVos's values are anything but educational. Her values are not our values.

If Senator Schumer votes to approve Ms. Devos, we demand that he not be invited to speak at any of our CUNY college commencements, as he does every year, and should he be invited to speak, we declare our intention to silently walk out of his speech in protest.
