Thoughts On Charlottesville
Regarding recent events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Board of Directors and the National Executive Board of Pi Delta Psi Fraternity, Inc. express heartfelt condolences to the families of Heather D. Heyer, Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, and Trooper Berke M. M. Bates, who lost their lives during this incident.
As an organization that advocates for Asian cultural awareness, we not only support our Brothers who exercise their voice in the fight against racism, bigotry, and social injustice, we support all people of good will who do the same.
While we use the word “fight” for this continuing struggle, it is a metaphor. We specifically condemn all forms of violence, particularly violence used to thwart political discourse and free expression of ideas.
