"Alpha Phi joins all who condemn racism, hate, bigotry, and violence. Our sisterhood grieves with the families and friends of those who have suffered injustice. As Alpha Phis, we expect our members to live up to our high ideals and to show the best qualities of character by being fair, inclusive, and supportive. Racism, hate, bigotry, and violence are in complete contradiction with our purpose.
The Fraternity is committed to providing education and resources that build cultural competence and to actively engage in conversations that challenge one another to be anti-racist. As members of Alpha Phi, we cannot stand silently by as our communities and the world are impacted by violence and injustice. We call on our members and chapters to stand up against hate and to take action to care for those who are harmed by racism.
To our Black members and friends, your families and loved ones, we see you, we hear you, and we stand hand-in-hand with you."
- Alpha Phi International
Beyond standing in solidarity, we are offering resources to further elicit change through education, donations, and vocalization. More information on these actions here.
