Alphas In the Streets
 
Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere, but this great story popped up in my Facebook feed about Alphas working in their community so I thought I'd share here.


Members of Alpha Phi Alpha march in the streets of Chicago to End Violence...

"We wanted to show that the community was not giving up"

"We wanted to show that the community was not giving up," said Sims, who is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha and currently represents Illinois' 34th District, which includes portions of the South Side of Chicago. "We wanted the business owners to know that we stood with them and we were going to be there making a statement, standing with them, to encourage patrons to patronize those businesses, to encourage people to feel comfortable and safe in their community."
Good stuff!

I was glad to see this public expression of leadership by my brothers. No doubt, it goes hand-in-hand with their ongoing work, along with other organizations, to stem the senseless tide of violence in Chicago.
