Webster’s dictionary defines “hazing” as:
To persecute or harass with meaningless, difficult, or humiliating tasks.
Alpha Lambda Zeta Fraternity, Inc. doesn’t advocate, promote, or acknowledge hazing as acceptable precursor or post initiation activity for perspective or existing members on any level.
Hazing is unlawful, demeaning, unproductive, and does not show honor from existing members and does not gain respect from perspective members. Alpha Lambda Zeta Fraternity, Inc. respects hard work, knowledge, and prominence within its membership; we seek womyn willing to work for our organization to uplift not to demean its purposes and principles.
Any person(s) caught enacting or accepting such acts will be immediately suspended or barred from membership in Alpha Lambda Zeta Fraternity, Inc. If you feel you have witnessed, been victim to, or been pressured to keep silent about witnessed hazing please email firstname.lastname@example.org
