Inside the attendees were treated to an impactful and timely speech delivered by Alpha Omega Chapter's own Bro. Mark E. Jackson, Grand Keeper of Records & Seal. His message was themed , "Omega, In the Need of Help with the Expediency of Now!." Bro. Grand, emphasized we need to make a major change with our image and protect our brand. He asked each brother to reflect on what they're doing now to ensure the legacy of our great fraternity. He asked if the founders were alive today, would they find every brother in attendance worthy of selection? A powerful statement of self reflection for each and every brother to think about how they're living up to the principles and ideals the founders embodied. Bro Jackson challenged each brother look at themselves to see what they are doing to improve our image and protect the brand, He also highlighted we need to do more to increase our economic power and impact our communities more. He asked that we leverage the brotherhood to maximize our potential to generate wealth and leverage our position to get corporations to invest in us. Lastly, we should not be on the sidelines during times of injustice and upheaval, Getting on the front lines to uplift our people and stand in the gap against those who would oppress us politically and economically should be our number one charge. Upon conclusion of the message brothers in attendance from across the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area rededicated themselves to our dear fraternity the Omega Psi Phi fraternity incorporated! It is this humble reporter's prayer that the stern message will bear fruit and carry the organization to new heights!
