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.
