During April, several fraternity chapters throughout North Carolina, including Duke’s Phi Delta Theta, will be campaigning to increase awareness of domestic violence and help raise money in conjunction with Fraternities4Family, a state-wide organization. The Phi Delt fraternity will be specifically raising money for Families Living Violence Free, which is a Granville County rape and domestic violence center.
The overall goal of the campaign is to increase awareness of violence against women and children in both the community and on Duke’s campus. Duke’s Phi Delt fraternity president, Edgar Baldridge, stated that “Particularly being fraternity men, we do recognize that, for better or worse, we can get that kind of reputation of being least willing to help with a program like that,” when explaining why they felt compelled to engage and help in this campaign.
