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

For Immediate Release:
June 4, 2020
Contact: Jesus Ramirez, Vice President of Marketing
Email: [email protected]

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. 

In regards to the concerns raised by a member of the Ohio University community, Alpha Psi Lambda followed protocol by directing the individual to contact their University and/or police immediately and in support of the individual, we then informed the University of the concerns.

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

Email: [email protected]

Chicago, IL - 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.

Alpha Psi Lambda Stands United in Support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

For Immediate Release:
November 13, 2019

Email: [email protected]

In 2012, President Barack Obama announced that undocumented minors who came to the United States as children and meeting specific conditions would be protected against deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The program allowed eligible people to request deferred action for a period of two years (subject to renewal), granting them a lawful presence in the United States so they could attend school and apply for employment authorization. In 2017, the Trump administration moved to end the DACA program. Immigrant advocates have since presented a legal challenge to allow existing DACA recipients to renew their status. Today, November 12, 2019, the Supreme Court listened to oral arguments to determine if the Trump administration ended the program lawfully. Nearly 800,000 have received work permits and deportation relief through the DACA program. Many of the DACA recipients risked exposing their unauthorized status by submitting the DACA application and now face the possibility that the information they provided could be used to separate them from their families.

Alpha Psi Lambda unequivocally supports our members and those with DACA status and calls on the Supreme Court to preserve the protections against deportation for those in the DACA program. Additionally, we encourage our members to:
