In 1999, the sisters of Sigma Psi Zeta formally adopted our national philanthropy: to combat violence against women. This includes, but is not by any means limited to, rape, incest, domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, exploitation, human trafficking, abuse of migrant workers, intimidation at work, child abuse, harassment, and spousal abuse. Any kind of physical, emotional, or mental duress constitutes violence.
SYZ hopes to bring awareness of this issue to our universities and communities at large. For over 19 years, SYZ sisters have built a campaign to help those affect by this tragic violence, to educate the community about the nature of this problem, and to empower our sisters to make a lasting commitment to the issue of violence against women.
