This past weekend the brothers of Delta Chi Psi hosted the Stop the Pain Campaign with Teens Organizing Pro-activity of the Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia (CAGP). This event was to help raise awareness and continue the fight against the inhumane enslavement of children and young women in Southeast Asia. Children are being sold into human trafficking and exploited through sexual slavery. We hosted this event because we believe it is up to our global community to come together to end this modern day man-made issue!
Hello everyone! The past week has been very busy for the brothers of Delta Chi Psi due to all the fun Greek Week events. We participated in various events such as Greek Sing, Can Creation, and the Banner Competition for Temple University’s Greek Week 2014. Delta Chi Psi performed a skit for Greek Sing; a showcase performance event where organizations put on a performance to encourage Greek unity on Temple University Campus among the multiple Greek councils across campus.

Temple University’s 3rd Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, & Gender Violence
On March 19th 2014, Delta Chi Psi was pleased to take part in Temple University’s 3rd Annual Walk A Mile in Her Shoes. This event’s goal is to raise awareness of domestic violence, rape, and gender violence. We participated in this event by wearing women’s high heels, and we proceeded by walking a mile around campus to grab public attention and make a statement towards an issue that deserves much more attention than it does today. Delta Chi Psi was fortunate enough to participate in this event for the past 3 years. We will continue to support the event not only to support our own anti-bullying campaign, but also to support those whose lives have been affected by rape and gender violence.
The brothers of Delta Chi Psi fraternity incorporated attended the 2014 East Coast Asian American Student Union at George Washington University. It was an amazing experience being able to attend workshops, learning new things, and networking with people all around the east coast! We’ll see you again next year in Boston!
