For Immediate Release                     June 8, 2010
__________________________________________


Lubbock, TX - Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. has decided, as a result of Arizona's recent passage of SB 1070 and HB 2281, to forego national or regional events in Arizona due to the organization's concern for the safety and well being of its membership. 
 
In addition, because of the recent decision of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors to move forward with their Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Kappa Delta Chi has agreed to not send representation to this event.  Again, Kappa Delta Chi is concerned with the impact that these two bills will have including racial profiling and ultimately fostering an anti-immigrant sentiment among the public. 
 
Kappa Delta Chi applauds the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO) for taking a strong stance regarding this legislation, including relocating their fall meeting.  Kappa Delta Chi also appreciates the positions of many organizations such as ACPA and a number of fraternal organizations who have released statements regarding the potential negative impacts of these two legislative bills and who will also refrain from hosting meetings/conferences in the state of Arizona.
 
Any additional questions regarding this statement should be referred to Ruby Alvarado Hernandez, Chair of the Board of Directors at [email protected]
