Official Statement in Support of Survivors

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Official Statement in Support of Survivors

October 8th, 2018 - - Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc., is an organization rooted in three core pillars but also just as importantly, an organization dedicated to empowering our members and women across the nation to not only do good, but do better. We believe in their wellness, their success, their vision, their passions, and their voices. As an organization empowering women to be their best, it means we are made up of individuals who lend an ear to others, not only to hear, but to listen well. With the current events politically unraveling before us, it is easy to feel like not everyone has a platform to safely come forward. The topic of sexual assault and violence has been brimming headlines for years, weaving through power differentials, gender gaps, and overall indifference. But sexual assault and violence is not a subject to be indifferent about—it’s one we need to fight against, collectively, until the day it isn’t an issue at all. We, the sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc., encourage others to continue building a platform that allows all survivors to speak their voices and safely feel heard. We believe in a community that is compassionate and fosters both equity and brevity. For those who need the courage to speak up, we stand by you. We believe you, empower you, and we support your voices. #KappasSupportSurvivors For more information, please visit:
