Finer Women Don't Haze

The History

The National Action Network, led by founder, president, and honorary Sigma Reverend Al Sharpton, began a partnership with the brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated to “eliminate hazing culture in an effort to end the pain and suffering of victims and their families and to stop the investigations, lawsuits and expensive legal costs that threaten the existence of black Greek-letter organizations”. In conjunction with the National Action Network and leadership of Brother Jimmy Hammock, 33rd International President of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was invited to become a part of this partnership to address, bring awareness to, and eradicate hazing in any form. A national Town Hall meeting was held in Charlotte, North Carolina in August 2012. Community leaders, representatives of the other Greek-letter fraternities/sororities, clergy, and media were invited to this paramount Town Hall meeting. Following this initial beginning, members of the Divine Nine were challenged to collectively become a part of this partnership and to redouble their individual efforts to address the issue of hazing. They were also challenged to get congress to pass hazing prevention legislation and/or strengthen state and local laws already on the books.
