For the third consecutive year Omega Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated (OPBSI) joins the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) in celebrating Sorority Life by encouraging members to wear our Sorority Crest on International Badge Day, taking place today Monday, March 6th.
International Badge Day was established in 1997 by the NPC to set aside a day or an event for women everywhere to wear their sorority badges or letters in a celebration of sisterhood. In recent years the NPC has extended an invitation to Sororities in other umbrella organizations including NPHC, NALFO, NAPA and NMGC to join in the excitement and show their Sorority pride. The theme of the day is: “Wear Your Letters on Your Heart.” Participation can be seen from national and international sorority groups.
OPBSI leadership believes it is important to participate in this event alongside NPC women to break down the barriers and stigmas associated with Sorority life and promote unity and pride among our respective organizations. There are many benefits to Sorority life that prepare women for life’s challenges and empower women to achieve their goals. Additionally, as a NALFO member organization, OPBSI believes in standing together as organizations whose contributions to society and our communities at large are equally important and impactful. Although we come from different cultural experiences we are connected by our struggles as women, often sharing similar values. We firmly believe that together our voices are stronger.
In addition to establishing a social media presence and encouraging participation among its members, OPBSI will launch a sale on Sorority symbols in its online store so that members are able to get pins for future badge days and to be able to proudly show the world that they are Sorority women. Members are asked to go to the Beta Store *SALE* page and enter the promotional code BADGEDAY17 upon checkout for 17% off their purchases!
