Brothers Lead New Strategy to Engage Campus Alumni
Founded in 2015, Alums for Campus Fairness (ACF) seeks to mobilize alumni who want to see their alma maters do the right thing when responding to anti-Semitism, the demonization of Israel, and bigotry in all forms. With 39 active chapters, ACF positions thousands of alumni on the front lines of key issues at their former schools to ensure that universities remain pillars of open dialogue and equal opportunity for all students. The network of campus alumni aims to send a unified message that there is no place for hate on their campus.
ACF empowers alumni to act by starting petitions, publishing op-eds, penning open letters to administration officials, and spearheading closed-door meetings with university leaders to combat bigotry and antisemitism at their alma maters.
ACF works with a coalition of partners to identify “at-risk” campuses that have a history of antisemitism and anti-Israel bias.
“AEPi is an important partner to help our undergraduate Brothers end these hateful acts on campus,” said ACF Executive Director Avi D. Gordon. “We amplify the voices of alumni from each university and work proactively with administrators to avert discrimination against students and faculty who support Israel.”
Prior to his current role, Brother Gordon served on the Fraternity’s professional staff as AEPi’s Director of Leadership Development and Director of Israel Engagement.
Additionally, ACF’s new Associate Director Joel Bond (San Diego State, 2015) is also a proud AEPi Brother who previously worked as a Springboard Fellow at Long Beach Hillel in Southern California. Brother Bond is excited to bring the leadership lessons he learned in the Fraternity to his new role.
