It's On Us to End Domestic Violence. Join us in empowering women at the University of Connecticut.

Alpha Kappa Lambda A Project of Ignite 2017

1 in 3 women have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime...

Domestic violence and sexual assault are prevalent issues not only in society but on college campuses as well. The physical assault on a female student while jogging at the University of Connecticut led to the creation of the Violence Against Women Prevention Program in 1979. Alpha Kappa Lambda stands with the UConn Women's Center's "Violence Against Women Prevention Program" (VAWPP) to prevent all forms of sexual violence through education, outreach, and advocacy.

Relationship violence and sexual assault is a threat to all college students, especially females. One in four college women report surviving rape or attempted rape at some point in their college career. If you or someone you care about has ever been assaulted, you understand how physically and emotionally damaging the effects can be.

Alpha Kappa Lambda's Gamma Pi Chapter at the University of Connecticut consists of over 100 brothers committed to a life of Judeo-Christian Principles, Leadership, Scholarship, Loyalty and Self-Support. This year, we are working hard with the Women's Center to support their mission in educating, advocating, and providing support services for the achievement of women's equity at our University and within the community at large. Your donation will support the VAWPP at UConn and will help to end domestic violence and support the empowerment of women.

If we raise more money than we need, the additional money will go to the UConn Women's Center. Or if we don't reach our goal, the funds will be used for the VAWPP.
