Holding Convention in Florida
AEPi’s International Conventions are scheduled 5-10 years in advance and, generally, coincide with the incoming and sitting Supreme Master’s desires on locations. None of the current controversies in Florida existed at the time that this contract was originally signed.
As a Jewish fraternity, one of the values of our teachings we hold most important is that all human beings are fashioned B’tselm Elohim, in the image of G-d. Therefore, it is wrong to treat anyone without dignity, no matter their gender, race, sexual orientation or religion. We strongly condemn any and all efforts to marginalize or humiliate anyone based on their gender identity or sexual orientation.
While apolitical, AEPi stands against all forms of hatred. As a component of our convention programming, we will be discussing this controversy and identifying appropriate and effective ways for our undergraduate Brothers to advocate our shared values — and their personal positions on such matters — on campus and within their community.
