CorCraft is a company that exploits the labor of incarcerated people for $0.16-$1.30 an hour. If CUNY and Brooklyn College care about racial justice they must cut their ties with CorCraft. Brooklyn College Community, please click on this link (works best if you open from phone, we have also provided the email ) to send an automatic email: https://efj.today/1KlZFY7m. Hunter students can go to @twumble for an email template to call out Hunter. We are done with empty statements of solidarity. It is time for these institutions to use their power to enact tangible change. Please share and feel free to adapt the email for your own school.

SUBJECT: End Brooklyn College's Ties to Unjust Prison Labor

MESSAGE:
My name is [first name, last name] and I am a [current/alum student/grad student/graduate/etc.] at Brooklyn College. A journalist at Stony Brook University recently published an article for The Stony Brook Press about their university’s ties to CorCraft, a company that utilizes poorly paid prison labor. I am emailing you today to deplore Brooklyn College’s parallel ties to CorCraft, and demand that the college and CUNY use their institutional power within New York State to terminate their contracts, call to defund the NYPD, and tell NYS to reinvest in CUNY.

President Michelle Anderson recently stated in an email responding to the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery that "at Brooklyn College, we stand against hate--and all forms of white supremacy." Note that she has failed to mention the names of Tony McDade and Layleen Polanco, just some of the many black trans folk murdered at the hands of white supremacy and institutionalized violence. The prison industrial complex and the prison labor used to produce the products purchased from Corcraft are an extension of slavery. They should be condemned as such. Vague statements of solidarity that clutter President Anderson's emails do nothing to change these injustices. Instead of standing under the gaze of performative allyship with such empty statements, I demand that Brooklyn College start using its institutional power to create tangible change to actually "stand against hate." It is not enough to just “understand the legacy of racism.” We need action and the time is now.

Sincerely,
[your name]
