The parents of murdered Florida A&M Marching 100 drum major Robert Champion were in Washington D.C. today to lend their support to the launch of a national anti-hazing initiative. Joining members of religious and academic communities, participants pledged a new focus upon awareness building, education, and scholarship opportunities recognizing efforts to end hazing.
“If you’re not on board, if you’re not about helping getting rid of the problem, then you are part of the problem,” Pam Champion said at a news conference at the National Press Club. “The thing is to rid the deep-rooted culture of (hazing). No more hiding. No more secrecy.”
