This flier, distributed by the Citywide Community Coalition, announces a citywide protest to the headquarters of the Emergency Financial Control Board (EFCB) in April of 1977. The EFCB was the body put in place to manage the budget crisis plaguing New York City. Made up largely of business people and bankers alongside city and state officials, the board was viewed as the driving force behind the massive cuts to public services New Yorkers sustained, including cuts to funding for CUNY. This flier articulates the need for groups from all across the city who have independently been fighting cuts to come together to oppose the actions of the EFCB.
