Did you see President Raab’s recent op-ed in the Daily News about the importance of voting this November? If not, view it online to read about Hunter College alumna Beatrice Lumpkin ’39! She was born during the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic and cast her first vote in 1940. This year, in a photo that went viral, things looked a bit different as she donned full PPE to cast her ballot. At 102 years old, she encourages all Americans to vote! Read more about her life as an activist in a recent article featured online in The Forward.
Hunter alumni aren’t the only ones active this campaign season. Many of our students have spent months working on the census and are now being recruited to serve as poll workers on November 3. Enjoy this video by Hunter students encouraging their classmates to make a difference in the 2020 election! Bea and our students truly embody our motto, Mihi Cura Futuri, “The Care of the Future is Mine.”
