The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni Chapter was able to provide 100 free turkeys to the communities we serve for the Thanksgiving Holiday. This is our largest contribution for Thanksgiving to date. The turkeys were donated to the chapter by Mr. Amad Elzayat who is president of the Amity Foundation.
Brothers were broken into three teams that worked with precision to assist the community. Team one met in Dearborn where we picked up the 100 turkeys and placed them into Brother Tim Lipkin’s and Brother Kilgore’s vehicles. Brother Kilgore transported 33 turkeys to Starfish Inkster for a giveaway and Brother Lipkin transported 64 turkeys to SOS in Ypsilanti for a giveaway.
There was a team of brothers and volunteers in Inkster waiting our arrival and we were able to pass out the turkeys in an assembly line fashion in Inkster.
Our third team met in Ypsilanti where 64 turkeys were dropped off to SOS who hand delivered many of the turkeys to citizens that did not have transportation to pick up at SOS.
The Ann Arbor Kappas continually remember and act on our personal responsibility to give back to our community.
Come out and join your Brothers and other men in the Community who are concerned about their health, want to fellowship with others in the community, and enjoy a free hot breakfast. Our own Brother, Dr. Scott Mial, will be a presenter along with Brother Dwayne Gill, Comedy Cop, Lansing Alumni. There will be free giveaways as well.

One out of every three African-Americans males will be incarcerated during their lifetime. How long will Americans tolerate a dual justice system? We cannot afford to ignore this catastrophic growth in incarceration! Sadly, the incarceration rate for African-American females is spiraling rapidly. It is both unjust and unfair to future generations of African Americans for us to allow this unchecked aggression to continue. We are asking organizations throughout southeastern Michigan to join the mass incarceration/criminal justice reform campaign, Project Fifty-Fifty.
This half-day forum addresses the massive incarceration/criminal justice system forced upon African American families.
Saturday, October 21, 2017
8:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Triumph Church, West Campus, 16115 Beck Road, Northville Michigan 48168
- Viewing a ground breaking documentary that chronicles the lives of people and families affected by mass incarceration – “Milwaukee 53206:A Community Serves Time.”
- Engaging round-table discussions with an overview of services and issues impacting the incarcerated and community reentry. Topics range from racial profiling to the reclamation of formerly incarcerated citizens, with recommendations to reduce recidivism and its collateral consequences.
- Coffee, tea, juice, juice, water and a box lunch will be served.
This free event is open to the public.
Due to the urgency of initiating this campaign, participants will not be charged a registration fee. We appeal to individuals, organizations, civic and interfaith groups for your generous financial support to cover the cost for this event. Make checks Payable to Triumph Church – Project Fifty-Fifty, and send to P.O. Box 3256, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. Your involvement is essential in eradicating unequal treatment of African Americans in the criminal justice system.
