Omega Psi Phi Conclave in Tampa Makes Significant Impact in Tampa with a Focus on Voter Suppression, DEI and Changes to the Educational Curriculum Brought on by the State of Florida

(Black PR Wire) Tampa, FL - - The recent Omega Psi Phi Fraternity conclave with a purpose held in Tampa has made a profound impact on the local community, particularly in the areas of voter suppression and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), the banning of books and more.The event drew over 30,000 fraternity members, local leaders, and activists committed to driving positive change in Florida.

One of the highlights of the conclave was the presence of Representative Jasmine Crockett, a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Her attendance underscored the unity and solidarity among Black Greek Letter Organizations, also known as The Divine Nine in addressing critical social issues.

Representative Crockett emphasized the importance of the fraternity's efforts in combating voter suppression and policies that hinder Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. "I’m truly about this life, that is why I consistently show up for my community, and to be clear Omega Psi Phi especially as a member of Delta Sigma Theta is a part of my community," said Rep. Crockett. “I don’t just show up during election time, I show up at other times as well.This was an opportunity that could not be missed. I needed them to understand that I’m out here on the frontline but I need them to fight with me; I needed them to know how much they matter.”

The conclave featured a series of workshops, panel discussions, and community service activities focused on empowering voters, educating the public on their rights, and fostering inclusive environments. Omega Psi Phi’s dedication to these causes has not only raised awareness but also mobilized action within the Florida community.

The fraternity’s initiatives included voter registration drives, distributed books about Black history and culture, educational sessions on combating voter suppression tactics, and collaborations with local organizations to ensure that every citizen’s voice is heard. Their DEI efforts also highlighted the importance of representation, equitable opportunities, and fostering a sense of belonging for all individuals.
