The National APIDA Panhellenic Association (NAPA) released a statement on May 27, 2020 calling for APIDA Solidarity Against Anti-Black Racism. As a trade association for APIDA fraternities and sororities, we understand that it is our responsibility to call our members to action and mobilize our communities to create change. To help our members understand the urgency of the movement and become involved, we have compiled this guide of resources for the APIDA community. If you are a part of the APIDA community, please utilize this guide to engage in advocacy work and circulate within your organizations, networks, and family.
Past Black & Asian Solidarity

Other Actions to Take
While this is by no means a full outline of all the possible solutions and resources available, we hope that it encourages you to engage in conversations, reflect on ways to make a difference, and empowers you to create change in your communities. NAPA stands in resounding solidarity with the Black community and is committed to ending anti-Black racism.
NAPA organizations set the gold standard for Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) fraternities and sororities. In addition to meeting the association’s base standards, NAPA member organizations are exposed to resources and expertise to help them continually improve and be the best they can be. Universities, Greek Councils, and students want the best APIDA fraternities and sororities on campus and they can find them in NAPA.
