Fraternity to host clothing, voter registration drive

The Eta Mu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity will host the ‘Eta Mu Block Party’ from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the University Center circle.

The event has two main focuses: The voter registration event, “A Voteless People is a Hopeless People,” and “Shirt off my Back” clothing drive.

The fraternity will also provide free food, music and games for students.

“I’m excited to have the block party and renew some of the genuine fun on campus while at the same time providing awareness politically and socially to the UH student body. We do everything for the people,” said Elliot Wright, vice president of the Eta Mu chapter.

“Shirt off my Back” is a movement the fraternity has been involved with for three years. Clothing collected during the block party will be donated to the OOEIM Orphanage in Accra, Ghana. Their campaign has spread awareness about disparity in Ghana and has aided kids since 2010.
