Carmel, IN – February 6, 2020 – The Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity Board of Directors is excited to announce a new partnership with The One Love Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to educate young people about healthy and unhealthy relationships, empower them to identify and avoid abuse, and build healthier relationships.
Lambda Chi Alpha will work with One Love to create educational programs that support the creation of relationship health amongst its members and their circles of influence. The programs will provide practical, tactical and actionable recommendations based on the best available evidence, literature and expert input.

Our members will have the tools they need to build healthy relationships at their fingertips.”
