Antonio F. Knox, Sr., 40th Grand Basileus stated, "We hosted a powerful Criminal Justice Reform panel at the 80th Grand Conclave in Las Vegas, NV with a stellar panel of experts. Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated wholeheartedly supports the President's leadership on the Criminal Justice Reform Bill. We must move to swift and deliberate action by making calls and writing our elected officials. We must add our names to the national petition that will help drive this bill forward into law. We must band together with all other Divine 9 and community organizations under the collective premise of equality and justice for all! We must turn out to vote in historic numbers to make this the largest push to the polls ever! I commend President Obama for his willingness to see possibility and his unwavering commitment to second chances forward. We Are One!"
