Chicago, IL Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc. is devastated and enraged by the ongoing acts of violence against the Black community including the recent murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. As an organization composed of a diverse membership, we stand in solidarity with the Black community, including all intersectional communities such as the Black and Disability Community and the Black LGBTQ+ Community, and ask that you join us in a call for justice for the lives lost unnecessarily.  

We ask our members to self reflect on their own biases, speak up against racist acts, and reach out to us if you need support or resources. We urge our membership to use caution and safety when participating in demonstrations. Remember, change begins within ourselves: 

  • Report any act of hate or racism.
  • Avoid racists language and confront those using it, including usage of the N-word. Do not make exceptions for your family and friends. 
  • Be an active bystander and vocalize your support for the Black community.
  • Be open-minded to learn about structural racism.
  • Get involved in your local community, including your workplace.
  • Listen to the issues brought up by the Black community.
  • Consider donating to Communities United Against Police Brutality (CUAPB) or the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)

Together We Shall Seek the Noblest.

In Solidarity, 
The National Executive Board
Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc.
