MISSION

HISTORY

Traditionally, the fraternal experience has been limited to men who have attended universities. These leaders have energized communities, created philanthropic institutions and fought for civil rights. However, as the challenges facing urban communities increased, so did the need for all men to organize, become engaged and develop the critical skills that would lead to empowerment. Community  organizations initially met the need for social connections. There was a need for support groups and programming that could make a difference on the grassroots level.

 

By early 2015, non collegiate fraternal organizations had begun to pop up across the country. Some were exclusive, many catered to individuals based on their ethnic background or orientation. The majority of these organizations were created for women. It was during that time that Jahaziel Perez , a Founding  member of Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. - Maryland ,  began to discuss with community members the formation of a civic fraternity for men. It would focus on empowering men through service, professional development and cultural awareness. This fraternity would work locally to address issues within each community.

 

He actively promoted the idea and gained support from a number legacy fraternal organizations. On June 25, 2017, Bruce Evans, Ishmael Malik, Jeffrey Lumpkins, Corey Lewis, Michael Axon joined him to become the founding Luminaries of Sigma Lambda Xi Fraternity . They were officially recognized and began to make an impact in the community.
