Statement Condemning Violence in Charlottesville, VA

14 Aug Statement Condemning Violence in Charlottesville, VA

The Board of Directors, staff, and membership of Lambda Phi Epsilon International Fraternity, Inc. condemn the acts of violence, bigotry, and racism that took place yesterday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Racism, bigotry, and violence have no place in our discourse, on our college campuses, or in our country. We stand shoulder to shoulder with all of those who exercise their sacred right to peacefully assemble, demonstrate, and advocate for their beliefs.

We educate our members to become Leaders Among Men in their communities. As cultural heritage is a core value of Lambda Phi Epsilon, we continue to stand by our brothers who courageously fight against racial and social injustice in all its forms.

We mourn with the friends and family of Heather Heyer, who lost her life in an intentional act of domestic terrorism. Our hearts and thoughts are also with all those injured in trying to make our country more authentic, more inclusive, and more free.
