About the event

What can we learn from CUNY’s past? Join scholars and activists who were involved in the fight for childcare during the period of open admissions at City College in the 1970s as they explore the history of childcare activism at CUNY. Students fighting to preserve those spaces today will add to the discussion, moderated by Sujatha Fernandes.

Reception to follow.
