From the 23rd International Grand Polaris
Last week Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. was called to a meeting at the White House with Vice President Kamala Harris and our fellow ‘Divine 9’ organizations. I am pleased that 22nd International Grand Polaris Andre Manson represented our Brotherhood at the meeting and has reported back to me the details of the discussion with Vice President Harris. We will share the details of that meeting on the website later this week.
As a member of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, we take our responsibility seriously as an anchor institution in our community. Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. will play a leadership role in addressing the critical issues facing our community and keeping our historical commitment to social justice. Combined with our very active Community Impact portfolio, we aim to be relevant to the needs of our community.
To that end, I encourage all Brothers to embrace civic engagement and to work to be a voice for positive change in your individual community. This means being a registered voter, an active and conscious voter, and a voice for justice when situations warrant uplifting others. Iota was built for times like this. Our five stars are more than a branding exercise. They represent a way of life to which we all must commit. Ow Ow
Yours in the fold,
Brother Sean D. Housen, Sr.
