It’s time to end IFC/Panhellenic Greek Life at Vanderbilt University.

Help us end this oppressive system before it causes any more harm.

Who We Are

About Us


We are committed to ending the classism, racism, sexism, ableism, transphobia, and homophobia perpetuated by IFC and Panhellenic organizations on Vanderbilt’s campus.

We are dedicated to creating a safer, more equitable space for all Vanderbilt students, both current and future.

We stand firmly against any efforts made by national IFC and Panhellenic organizations to reform these inherently flawed institutions. The only way forward is abolition.

For more information on our goals, read our letter to the Vanderbilt University Administration.

Testimonials

“As a member of the LGBT community who has struggled with coming out over the past few years, I have felt the worst when I tell my friends in Greek Life (or they find out somehow) that I am bisexual…

People in Greek Life still have to acknowledge that they majorly benefit from an oppressive system that many times, invades POC spaces…”

“They don’t seem to care. As if they don’t see that I am Black and these are my people. Being in Greek life at Vanderbilt just felt like I was a means to an end. So I dropped. And I’d do it again and again… “
