UPDATE: The AEPi foundation has covered the costs of cleaning and installing a security camera system. We are incredibly grateful and proud to announce ALL proceeds will be going to Yad Vashem and JCC SLO. Donation period ends Friday, February 12th at 5PM PST.
Hello friends and family,
On Saturday morning, February 6th, a hateful group of people committed an antisemitic hate crime on our chapter house. We awoke to multiple swastikas and antisemitic statements spray-painted on and in front of our house. This was targeted at us, as the Jewish fraternity, and we would like to let the world know we do not tolerate or condone this behavior. Our chapter and the entire San Luis Obispo Jewish community stand together proudly against those who are uneducated and who encourage hateful acts.
We have received a lot of positive attention, and would like to put that energy towards a good cause. ALL DONATIONS will be split between a donation towards Yad Vashem and the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of San Luis Obispo. This will be done on behalf of AEPi SLO in hopes that we can make the best of a difficult situation.
All donations of any amount will go a long way to make right of this situation, and secure our house for the future.
Yad Vashem – Maintaining the memory & education of the Holocaust
JCC SLO – This donation will be used to develop a Jewish Learning Festival on Cal Poly SLO’s campus in the future!
