Lambda Phi Epsilon for Black Lives Matter

Tax deductible
This fundraiser is open to all affiliations and identities.  Thank you to all undergraduates, alumni, friends, family, partners, and allies that have donated in support.

Lambda Phi Epsilon International Fraternity is committing to match donations up to $4,000. As we hear back from alumni and partner organizations, we will continue to update this total.*

Breonna Taylor 
George Floyd 
Ahmaud Arbery
Tony McDade
Dion Johnson
And too many others

Their lives matter.  Black lives matter.

The unprovoked killing of George Floyd follows a disturbing pattern of disproportionate police brutality against African Americans that include Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and many more. Their deaths, and those of Ahmaud Arbery and Trayvon Martin, are tragic symptoms of rampant racism in our country and the systematic failure of our society and institutions to eradicate them.

The Brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon International Fraternity stand against all forms of anti-Black racism and reaffirm our unequivocal support for the Black Lives Matter movement. We urge the greater Asian community to join us in solidarity and fund the fight for transformative justice.  Our fight against systemic racism is interconnected with that of the Black community and we only win when we are allied for social justice.

Donations will be distributed to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.  

The LDF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that functions as the legal arm of the civil rights movement.  The LDF continuously works to defend the gains and protections won over the past 75 years of civil rights struggle.  Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, the LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans.
