Chicago, IL In the past 24 hours, we have taken time to digest the events that have happened at the nation’s Capitol. Many of us are feeling mixed emotions of anger, frustration, sadness, and fear.  This, compounded by the difficulties over the past year brought on by the pandemic, continued injustices to our communities, and experiences of personal loss make it even more horrifying. 

We would be remiss not to acknowledge the continued double standards and lack of accountability regarding white supremacy and acts of domestic terrorism. We need to lean on each other in times like these. We implore you to take care of your personal well-being. Consider taking social media breaks as reading and watching non-stop media coverage can be overwhelming. We urge you to talk with each other, your peers, your families, or your mentors about your emotions and thoughts as you process recent events. Please know that you may seek help and care from the members of the National Executive Board as well.

You may also find resources available on the National website that may be helpful: https://www.alphapsilambda.net/mental-health-and-wellness 

We encourage those of you who wish to become more involved in efforts for accountability and systemic change, seek out reliable information, organizations, and activities to take positive and safe action. Reach out to your state and local representatives to voice concerns and demand actions.

As we continue to navigate these unprecedented and challenging times, we ask that our membership support and take care of one another and to have hope because “Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” (Desmond Tutu)
