Message from the President

  • President LewisGreetings Brothers, Friends, and Community Partners:

     

    Welcome to the virtual home of the Omicron Eta Lambda (OHL) Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated! Founded in 1906, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity has remained a beacon of light to our global society, providing transformational leadership through advocacy and action. As the Omicron Eta Lambda Chapter celebrates its 35th Anniversary, we are more than excited to continue to amplify our service and impact to the Washington, DC community.  Our brothers are committed to our National Programs, as we promote that A Voteless People, Is a Hopeless People throughout the metropolitan area and A+ Achievers Program / Go to High School- Go to College at Center City Public Charter School - Congress Heights Campus.  We also align our work and efforts with community partners who fill in some societal gaps such as March of Dimes, Food & Friends of the Capital Region, and So Others May Eat (SOME). 

     

    Since our inception in 1985, the Omicron Eta Lambda Chapter adopted the Southwest quadrant of Washington, DC as our target area and has developed a partnership with Friends of Southwest to host an annual Community Day and Summit for the residents.  Given our commitment to academic excellence and young people, our chapter, in conjunction with the Omicron Eta Lambda Educational Foundation, has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships to deserving DC high school graduates. 

     

    I invite you to further explore our website and experience the great work of our chapter.  If you are a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and in search of a chapter to hold the light high, we invite you to one of our events or chapter meetings.  

     

    Omicron Eta Lambda Chapter will continue to work with intense passion and commitment as we celebrate and drive our chapter’s initiative through our theme for this year; OHL 35: Greater Impact, Greater Service to inspire our communities and revere our tenet of love for all mankind.



    Yours in Service,

     

    Bro. Dr. Jubria A. Lewis

    President
