Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc. Supports Every Sexual Assault Survivor’s Right and Power to be Heard

Chicago, IL - Alpha Psi Lambda takes all allegations of sexual harassment and assault seriously. We believe sexual assault is inexcusable and have worked diligently to address any incidents that are brought to our attention appropriately. The standard procedure of Alpha Psi Lambda’s National Office is to direct individuals involved in sexual harassment and assault to their University and/or local authorities, as Alpha Psi Lambda does not have the capacity or tools to investigate these incidents to the extent they deserve. The National Office independently escalates all reports to the University to ensure the proper authorities can take appropriate actions.

Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc. Stands United With Latino Students At The University of Lynchburg

Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc. extends its support to our members, the Latino students at the University of Lynchburg, and the greater community affected by recent events. The incident that occurred last week involving students who hosted an on-campus party that enforced culturally insensitive stereotypes is unacceptable. We are concerned to hear from students that this is not an isolated event. While we acknowledge that efforts to educate students on diversity have been made available, we urge the administration to give its students a voice to address these incidents. We applaud Darian Geddis and Laura Arriaza, current Lynchburg Affiliate Chapter President, for opening this dialogue with local media. We call on the community to join its students on their walkout this Wednesday to stand in solidarity and take action.

As members of the Latino community, we call on the University of Lynchburg to increase its efforts to change the culture of the campus and proactively protect students of all identities. Alpha Psi Lambda will continue to advocate for the needs and concerns of the Hispanic/Latino students.

In Solidarity,
The National Executive Board

Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc. extends its thoughts to all those who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey and we extend our deepest sympathies to those who have suffered a tragic loss of life.

The state of Texas was in the direct path as Harvey made landfall, with the city of Houston impacted the greatest. Thousands have been displaced and are actively searching for secured shelter. The City of Houston, with support from Mayor Sylvester Turner, wants to remind residents that immigration status will not be a factor in receiving emergency aid and no one will be turned away at shelters.
