Lobbying for our future

Pi Beta Phi participates in ongoing efforts in Washington, D.C., on behalf of the fraternity and sorority community. For more than 10 years, representatives of fraternities and sororities have established relationships and communicated our issues and concerns with Members of Congress.

The work is done through the Fraternal Government Relations Coalition (FGRC), of which Pi Beta Phi is a member. The coalition, representing the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) and the Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee (FSPAC), monitors and addresses legislative issues important to the fraternity world.

Lobby on Capitol Hill

Each spring, a team of Pi Phi collegians and alumnae lobby on Capitol Hill alongside more than 200 fraternity and sorority members — both students and alumni. The annual lobbying day is coordinated by FGRC with pro bono assistance from the Arnold & Porter law firm. The men and women not only lobby in favor of legislation important to fraternities and sororities, but also share updates about their personal experiences and news from their respective campuses.

Pi Beta Phi recruits collegians annually to join the Fraternity's lobbying team. Applications are accepted in the fall and are reviewed by Pi  Phi, with final selections made by the FGRC. Check back here for updates this fall.
