To: The CUNY Chancellor and the Board of Trustees

The CUNY administration must support the naming of a Hunter building for Audre Lorde. Now!

CUNY must forgo the usual procedures and donation levels required to name buildings and proceed to rename Hunter's West Building for Audre Lorde!

Why is this important?

At this formative moment for racial justice in our society, CUNY must use its naming rights to elevate someone who reflects the multiply diverse backgrounds--in terms of race, class, gender, sexuality, immigrant origins--of the student population. Otherwise, there will never be a building named after someone who reflects the backgrounds of CUNY students and who can therefore truly inspire them.
