Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Incorporated condemns the hate crimes that unfolded in at Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana this week. As a sisterhood based on the unification of all women and multiculturalism, we deplore any hate and intolerance in our communities.

We recognize that the events surrounding the senseless attack of students on the campus of DePauw University, point to a series of systemic issues that exist in our communities. Although we are unable to change the past, we are more than capable of creating a better tomorrow. Our sisters, DePauw students, and our communities deserve to live without fear. We are grateful for the safety of our sisters of the Wujimu Chapter at DePauw University, and stand with them in their demands to ensure the campus remains a safe space for all students.

Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Incorporated condemns such intolerance and we call on the DePauw University administration to do the same. We call on those responsible to be brought to justice. Together, we must stand up against racism, and do something about the lack of compassion around us. We urge everyone to reflect and challenge your own personal views, and continue the dialogue to help influence the national conversation.

Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Incorporated speaks to use our sorority as a vehicle to educate the surrounding campus and community on issues of diversity. It is critical that we advocate for those who may face injustices at school, work, or in the community. We urge our sisters and communities to continue to combat racism and fight for equality. We encourage our undergraduate chapters to feel empowered to foster change on a grassroots level.

As a leading multicultural women’s organization with a 36-year commitment to the advancement of our communities, sisters of Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Incorporated worldwide pray for peace and healing, not only in Greencastle, Indiana, but also all across our nation.
