The members of Rutgers AAUP-AFT join our colleagues at PSC-CUNY in condemning the grand juries’ failure to issue indictments in Ferguson and Staten Island.
As Barbara Bowen, President of PSC-CUNY, states, "The decision to not even take the cases to trial suggests that black and brown lives in the United States continue to be devalued."
Many of our students and members at Rutgers have taken action these last weeks and this Saturday, December 13, tens of thousands of people are expected to converge in Manhattan at 2pm at Washington Square Park to march peacefully to One Police Plaza near the Brooklyn Bridge. Please consider joining with them.
