Official statement from Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. on the recent tragedies

For Immediate Release: July 9, 2016
Official statement from Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. on the recent tragedies:
Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Community and friends:
In our distress at the fatal shootings recently, we must once again ask ourselves, how do we respond? How can we work together for justice and peace when we find ourselves so deeply divided? How do we overcome violence and racism when tragedy upon tragedy reopens our own deepest wounds?
As the leaders of a multicultural family, we offer one word: Solidarity.
 
Solidarity with our Black sisters
Solidarity with our Afro-Latina sisters
Solidarity with our mixed-raced sisters
Solidarity with our sisters who are police officers and mourn their blue blood families
Solidarity with all of our neighbors and loved ones who are enduring the emotional toil that violence brings
In solidarity, we recognize our shared humanity in all of its joys, hopes and sufferings. In solidarity, we strive to bear each other’s dreams and each other's wounds. Our common humanity, our desire to live in peace, and our basic human needs all bind us together. In solidarity, we walk together on the path of peace.
Let us remember there are no right answers or immediate solutions that our words alone can provide. Let's not forget we are family and we need to respect all of our sisters, backgrounds, beliefs and emotions at this time.
 
KDChi's National President, Melanie Rodriguez shares the following words as she tries to absorb and respond to the violence that has erupted.
 
"As I read the news of the horrific events that have plagued our country in the last few days I am deeply saddened. In many ways I feel helpless. However, I also see a shift in the words I read from others. If there is one thing that has resonated with me it’s that social media is an outlet for people to vent and express their feelings about what has happened. But the real work comes offline. Where we as individuals take those emotions and reactions and put them into action. In my mind there is no one answer. There is no one leader of one movement that will change the world. Change begins with each and every one of us. No matter how big or small every action that we take has an impact on someone, somewhere."
 
We encourage those who need help or who are feeling distressed to seek help using the following resource American Psychological Association or other similar resources in your local community.
 
Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. stands in solidarity and sends prayers to the family and victims of all of those who've lost their lives or been affected by these tragedies.

KDChi Natl President Mary Gonzalez

Sisters and friends,

Get to know KDChi's National President, Mary Gonzalez of KDChi's Pi Chapter at The University of Texas at Austin.
Not only is she a TX State Representative, but did you know she knows how to milk a cow, loves to dance bachata and can't live without her big hoop earrings?! Her job as National President is to make sure all VP's have the support they need, she's the go between for the National Officers and the BOD and the Foundation, and she leads all of our national conference calls and assists VP's with all aspects of KDChi!
Not bad for someone who works, teaches and is finishing up her PhD.
Way to go Mary, we love you and are thankful for your dedication to the sisterhood!

Newly Elected KDChi Natl Officers!

Congratulations to the newly elected 2013-2014 Kappa Delta Chi Sorority National Board! Thank you, sisters, for the time and energy you volunteer to sustain and grow our sisterhood nationwide! We appreciate you and all that you do.
