Standing in Solidarity with Black Lives.



May 29, 2020


We, the Alpha Eta chapter of Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc., enunciate our frustration over recent events and atrocities committed against our black communities. Our organization recognizes and stands in solidarity against the oppression that our black communities have historically and currently face in this country. As a part of the National APIDA Panhellenic Association, NAPA, we denounce anti-black racism and acknowledge that non-black people of color owe many of their rights to the struggles and support of black communities. Read more about NAPA's statement on Asian American Solidarity Against Anti-black Racism. As leaders of our Asian-American community, we call on all Asian-Americans and allies to recognize the privilege and influence we have


and to use it to fuel conversations with family members, peers, and within our own organizations to actively dismantle and unlearn anti-black biases. We implore everyone in the Asian-American community to dedicate themselves to learning about these injustices and movements. We encourage the Asian-American community to actively call out members for anti-black rhetoric and microaggressions, recognizing the harmful bigotry that is present within our communities. With that being said, we have compiled a document of resources including educational sites, donations, petitions, and mental health articles pertaining to current events (also linked in our Instagram bio @unckpl). Utilizing and sharing these sources can come a long way as we gather together as a community to stand by #blacklivesmatter.⁣⁣
