WHO WE ARE
Our goal is not to put a bandaid on the issue, but to propose a way to start healing the wound. Take a Pledge Against Racism.
Our goal is to address racism in Panhellenic and IFC at The University of Georgia and create a more inclusive environment for the future.
We are past members of Panhellenic and current UGA alumni who explicitly benefited from and recognize the rigged, whitewashed system that are upheld by the systems of Panhellenic and IFC.
We are motivated by the BLM movement to push towards change.
Be the change. #pledgeagainstracism
Panhellenic and IFC have a huge impact on UGA’s campus, and we believe it is time to that influence for social justice against racial discrimination. We are here to crowdsource and listen to what the people want. This is about helping provide a platform for voices to be amplified.
The lack of representation is not the key issue-- it’s an indicator of a much greater one.
We strive to ensure that BIPOC feel embraced and accepted wherever they choose to affiliate.
We must move in the right direction. Sign our petition to support the new roadmap.
Transparency - Most of us working on this petition were once members of Greek Life/ current alumni who explicitly benefited from the rigged, whitewashed system. We have to be honest, transparent and face that fact. It took the energy of the BLM movement to finally push us to change. We owe the Black community that acknowledgment.
Cooperation - We are here to crowdsource and listen to what the people want. This is not about “saving” anyone. This is about helping provide a platform for voices to be amplified.
Advocacy - We will be actively anti-racist and work against racism's multidimensional aspects.
Accountability - We promise to hold every Greek Life organization and individual accountable. We will ensure there are strong safeguards, practices and vetting processes in place that will hold individuals accountable. We will no longer tolerate racism.
