We strive to use our community and platform to uplift marginalized voices and shine light on injustices close to our hearts. With our motto of "the reward is in the doing," we are committed to making a positive impact in our communities.
Stop Abuse For Everyone
Our national philanthropy is domestic violence and sexual assault awareness, and we hope to create a supportive network and open dialogue for these issues that are often stigmatized. Every semester, we host S.A.F.E Week to educate, inform, and raise monetary contributions for survivors of abuse and sexual assault at local Austin shelters, SAFE and AFSSA. Past activities have included: self-defense courses, donation drives, creating menstrual kits for survivors, sexual assault workshops, talent shows, and much more. The Gamma Chapter at The University of Texas at Austin is proud to have won the National Service Award across all Sigma Chapters for three years in a row.
Although raising awareness and aiding survivors of domestic violence is our main pillar, Sigmas are not limited to just that. We host monthly service events addressing various socioeconomic and human rights issues to help where we can. Many of our members spend their time volunteering at Dell Children's Medical Hospital, Workers Defense Project, local elementary schools, various non-profit organizations, and other affiliated UT Projects - such as Brave the Shave, Explore UT, Project, and Texas 4000.
