Letter from Our Sister

Chi Upsilon Sigma is not affiliated with any political party. Everyone is titled to their own opinions and political views.

In light of recent events in Arizona, we received this letter from one of our sisters from our University of Arizona chapter.

Recently Arizona governor Jane Brewer has been thinking about passing SB 1070 “the safe neighborhood act”. It targets Mexicans/ Mexican Americans/ Chicanos/as. ..or anyone who “looks like an  illegal immigrant”, so basically racial profiling. Last week some shuttles that take people from Nogales (an Arizona/ Mexico bordertown) to Tucson and Phoenix were seized based on racial profiling and my boyfriend’s dad’s shuttle was seized and is under investigation. ICE, TPD (Tucson Police Department), and SWAT are patrolling our neighborhoods and terrorizing people based on the color of their skin (sounds familiar huh). These government and federal agencies waited outside of schools to deport parents who could not prove their citizenship. They are only targeting the South Side (because it is predominantly  Latino). I ask that you help us get this senate bill vetoed! I have been in the midst of helping RIFA (Reform Immigration of America) organize the protests and rallies here in Tucson and now I am calling on you to help us! This is an urgent situation that needs immediate attention as it is a violation of HUMAN rights.

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO (and you can sign, call and fax as much and as many as you want!):

Sign this Petition from Change.org

About CUS - Alpha Zeta Chapter

Picture In the Spring of 2002 a group of women realized their common want and need for an organization that was something greater than what already existed at Texas Christian University; thus leading to the beginning of a concept that would turn out to have extraordinary outcomes. After many weeks of researching different sororities they came upon Corazones Unidos Siempre Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Incorporated and upon this discovery the searching ended. The women wanted an organization that embodied sisterhood, education, and community service. This and much more was exemplified by Chi Upsilon Sigma. The two devoted women, Eugenia Redondo and Lisa Marie Cano, established the Alpha Zeta Colony at TCU on Sunday, April 13, 2003. Alpha Zeta Colony received Chapter recognition on April 11, 2005. The women of Alpha Zeta dedicate their efforts to promote the sorority’s motto, “Wisdom through Education” as well as educate the public on social, political, cultural, and educational issues. As Alpha Zeta continues to grow with women who are not content to accept an ordinary life, who are willing to make a difference and who are not afraid to voice their opinion, the Light of CUS will never grow dim.
