Lambda Theta Alpha Joins for I Stand With Immigrants Day of Action

November 8, 2021 – Lambda Theta Alpha joined and other organizations nationwide for the 6th annual I Stand With Immigrants Day of Action on October 28, 2021. Our participation marks a historic fight to get Congress to pass legislation that includes a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented people. 

Lambda Theta Alpha carried out its commitment to uplift the voices of immigrants during this time of needed congressional action for the protection of our communities. Our membership represented one of the largest groups on this Day of Action, with 35 chapters participating in student-led events taking place throughout colleges and universities across the country and virtually.

The campaign encouraged the exploration of our individual heritage(s) and the recognition of our distinct and shared experiences. It aimed to bring awareness to our shared history and stand in solidarity with friends, neighbors, peers, teachers, and all immigrants who continue to drive this nation forward. The sorority’s National Political Education Initiative Committee (PEI) is proud to have helped facilitate the participation of a large portion of this year’s initiative by serving our chapters with the tools needed to implement a successful event.

Why is this year’s initiative historic? So that Congress and the current administration can deliver on the promise to energize our economy and heal our nation by resetting and rebuilding our immigration system with a new path to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS and DED recipients, essential immigrant workers, and countless families who have longed waited with the American public for a lasting, legislative solution. For more than four decades, Congress has failed to deliver transformative change to the country’s immigration system.

Black immigrants are more likely to be detained and deported than other immigrants. The cruelty and racism that pervades our immigration system must end. Immigration reform such as the SECURE Act can move the nation one step closer to addressing these wrongs by recognizing TPS and DED families, their contributions, and delivering an opportunity to remain in their homes and with their families. This is especially pertinent as Haitian immigrants continue to face a humanitarian crisis at our borders.

For these reasons, the participation in the I Stand With Immigrants Day of Action this year represents a fortified push for human rights to our immigrant community. The PEI committee applauds our 35 chapters who uplifted the aforementioned dynamic issues at hand.
