American women were jailed and ostracized for advocating for the right to vote, and as a women’s organization, we want you to take a closer look at the rights and privileges of citizenship. As we prepare for an election cycle, we want you to engage in watching the various debates to learn more about your role as an engaged citizen. Tri Sigma women vote! Let’s be engaged in the process that is our duty and responsibility.

For the next 40 days, Tri Sigma will be engaging in a conversation with you and with our inter-fraternal peers and partners. The conversation has not started today, in fact, this conversation has challenged members of the fraternity and sorority community for decades. Let’s take personal responsibility to dispel the myth that hazing is acceptable in any values based or team based environment. It is easy to support solutions to end hazing. For 40 days leading up to National Hazing Prevention Week (September 24 – 28, 2012), one commonly heard excuse for hazing will be posted via the Twitter accounts for HazingPrevention.Org (@preventhazing) and Tri Sigma.

When sisters gather in support of a Tri Sigma, it is always a powerful experience. Rose Trahan Cipriano, a Tri Sigma alumna and her family were victims of a violent attack. On Friday, June 8th, Tri Sigma women from a number of cities joined more than 2,000 other community members to participate in the Cipriano 5K in Farmington/Farmington Hills, Michigan.
“We felt the bonds of sisterhood so strongly. Wisdom, faith, hope power and love, the values of Tri-Sigma, were so evident. Alpha Phi sisters of Rose reunited from many states. Many had not been in contact for over 30 years. Over 2100 people walked in the event that was planned for 500, and the community support for the family was amazing. Sisters shared an evening of reminiscing and writing notes of support to Rose and her family,” Arlene Reid Ball said after the event.
