Alums for Campus Fairness (ACF) is outraged and appalled by the recent antisemitic incident at Caly Poly San Luis Obispo where the Alpha Epsilom Pi Fraternity (AEPi) house was vandalized with swastikas and other anti-semitic graffiti on Friday night. ACF will not stand by as Jewish spaces at our alma mater are targeted.
According to the AEPi statement, “We are proud to be the Jewish fraternity on this campus, and at this time we ask for your support in spreading awareness about rising antisemitism through education and discussion. AEPi and the Jewish community have an open door to anyone who wishes to learn about our culture and beliefs.”
ACF calls on the Administration and San Luis Obispo Police to take necessary and appropriate action moving forward that ensures the safety of the campus Jewish community.
We ask that our supporters and supporters of the Cal Poly Jewish community reach out and show support to AEPi. ACF would like to open a line of support for the students, to help us start a chapter at Cal Poly SLO, please join us here.
