Lambda Hill Day Pilot Participants

Lambda Hill Day-Website

The Political Education Initiative (PEI) is actively organizing a pilot program for Lambda Hill Day in partnership with Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. The two-day advocacy program will take place April 27-28, 2017 in Washington D.C. and serves as a direct opportunity for our members to meet with elected officials and advocate for our communities. Earlier this year, chapters were provided an opportunity to select the priority issue that will form the core of our meetings on Capitol Hill. Of the chapters that participated in the poll, 58% selected immigration as the top issue.

We are extremely proud to share that the committee received 34 applications from sisters interested in participating in the pilot program. Due to space limitations, only nine applicants were selected to join the six-member planning committee. The following sisters will attend meetings with members of Congress to share their personal stories concerning immigration.

Earlier this month, participating sisters joined members of Lambda Theta Phi for a virtual briefing and were tasked with calling their elected officials to schedule meetings on the Hill. A more in-depth training will be held next week in preparation for the event. With this partnership, we hope to serve as a voice for the Latino community and demonstrate the immense power that lies within our organizations.
