END ALL Hazing Act Introduced by Congresswoman Marcia Fudge (D-OH) and Congressman G.T. Thompson (R-PA)
WASHINGTON, DC – Fraternity and sorority groups along with parents of children who died from acts of hazing collectively are backing new legislation to eradicate hazing on college campuses. The Educational Notification and Disclosure of Actions risking Loss of Life (END ALL) Hazing Act was introduced June 13 by Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-OH, and Rep. G.T. Thompson, R-PA.
For too long, hazing has threatened the health and safety of students and undermined the educational mission of higher education institutions. The END ALL Hazing Act will help foster the eradication of hazing at colleges and universities by ensuring campus-wide transparency and accountability in all student organizations.
END ALL Hazing Act support is coming from a coalition of parents who have lost sons to acts of hazing, fraternal “umbrella” organizations, which collectively represent more than 100 fraternities and sororities, as well as the associations that provide development to student leaders and professionals who work with fraternities and sororities.
Officials from the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA), Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV), Northeast Greek Leadership Association (NGLA), Southeastern Greek Leadership Association (SGLA), HazingPrevention.Org and the Anti-Hazing Coalition endorse the legislation.
In a powerful alliance, parents who have lost children to incidents of hazing have been working with these organizations to engage in aggressive student education, outreach and advocacy efforts to end tragic hazing incidents as well. The Anti-Hazing Coalition (AHC) seeks to address the problem earlier through education and prevention, while also encouraging accountability and transparency through legislation. The AHC strongly supports the END ALL Hazing Act.
