Let's Make A Change
Help register people to vote
Gamma Xi requires every member to be a registered voter to be admitted membership. The brothers of GXi volunteer hours during election season to help bring effective change in our communities. During campaign season members encourage our peers, family members, and individuals in our community to get registered to vote and remind them of voting deadlines.
Stand up 2 HIV Atlanta
Most people don’t want to get tested or do get tested, but don’t want to admit they’re HIV positive and get on treatment, so that’s a big thing. "Stigma, homophobia and racism”– all of these things work together to keep people out of care and away from testing and preventative services. The members of Gamma Xi promotes hiv/aid education and safe sex education. Gamma Xi annually participate in Stand up 2 HIV Atlanta Testing drives and workshops.
Ronald McDonald Foundation
Ronald McDonald Family Room Staff and Volunteers provide support and hospitality for those ‘escaping’ the hospital setting for a few moments while steps away from their child’s hospital bed. Gamma Xi chapters locally volunteers at the Ronald McDonald Foundation.
The P.A.C. Foundation
The P.A.C. foundation was established in 2018 as the idea for Gamma Xi to make an impact on the community. This foundation annually gives out toiletries to homeless and unfortunate lgbtq community members, and awards book scholarships to a local lgbtq freshman in the Atlanta area. We believe that minor efforts gradually make big impacts. If we can provide one individual with hope, Gamma Xi’s mission is accomplished! For more information, please contact
our Director Public of Affairs.
Keeping our local parks in our community clean.
Parks are great for those who enjoy outdoors and wildlife, but often times are mistreated in trashed. It is important to keep parks in our community clean from liter, sex, alcohol, and drug debris at the same park our kids in the same community enjoy coming to.
