Social Justice Statement
During this COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue with what we are doing to prevent further spread of the virus; acting responsibly in regards to our health and the health of others, social distancing, wearing of face masks in public and routine hand washing. We will continually educate ourselves about the virus, heeding only the advice from expert scientists, the C.D.C and W.H.O. Additionally, we will maintain our focus on the various avenues of service which we can be of help; food drives, aid to our local communities in need and providing resources to front line responders. We stand for one shared goal to beat COVID-19 and stand against any inequities of our society in regards to COVID-19. We grieve heavily for our beloved members lost and that of all families who have lost loved ones.
We, the body of Alpha Pi Chi National Sorority, Inc., stand in solidarity; united by love and understanding with the Black Community, Black Lives Matter and non-violent others seeking justice and equality. We stand against systemic racism and brutality, and for a safe and equal existence for all Blacks and people of color. We fully understand our right and civic responsibility to the deaths which occurred because of unchecked, unrestrained and bias force. We call for the reform of all systems designed to perpetuate division, hatred and oppressed subjugation of all people.
Alpha Pi Chi National Sorority, Inc., stands in honor of the life of Congressman John R. Lewis and the legacy he left. We stand congruent to the ideals he courageously and valiantly fought for. He championed the demand of respect, dignity and self-worth of every human being. “He was honored and respected as the Conscience of Congress.” His was a life dedicated to non-violent activism; fighting for equity, justice, voting rights and many other civic and human rights issues. We stand identical in the mindset of using our voice and power to make a difference, demonstrating the way of peace, thus bringing forth a unified nation. Understanding fully, the title of John Lewis’ last essay, “Democracy is not a state. It is an act,” we shall continue our action, for we are not afraid of getting in ‘good trouble’.
Lastly, we stand to continue the fight for Voter’s Rights. With the seeds planted, watered and sowed by John Lewis, we will also champion voter’s rights, for we know fully that change only happens when we vote. Additionally, we will fight tirelessly against voter suppression measures. And like Congressman John Lewis, we will not get weary, but fight on keeping truth in forward motion.
We pledge to work as the hands and feet of the Divine; for the poor and oppressed, as agents of love and understanding living at peace with all. We are the change agents for generations to come.
