In response to the recent events that took place in Charlottesville, the National Executive Board of Sigma Psi Zeta Sorority, Inc. affirms our opposition to racism, violence, and bigotry. We are disheartened by these acts of hatred and domestic terrorism committed by white nationalists and neo-Nazis; we are outraged that this country has allowed these hate groups to grow and influence today's society. Sigma Psi Zeta stands in solidarity with the UVA and Charlottesville community as we mourn the lives tragically lost this Saturday.
Sigma Psi Zeta believes that diversity – in thinking, in experience, in background – is the key to success in our communities. Within our own organization, we strive to empower women, particularly women of color, to lead from the front, even in times of great tragedy. We encourage our members, our fellow Greeks, and our campus and local communities to be vocal in the fight against social injustice and racism.
We feel personally connected to this tragedy because of our Lambda Chapter at UVA. As the news spread, our thoughts immediately turned to our sisters and their families, which led to a greater desire to support all the people of Charlottesville. It's this compassion for others, especially for those we have never met, that reminds us why social change is a fight worth fighting for.
