The Empowered Arab Sisterhood was founded on April 24, 2012 at the University of California, Los Angeles. Striving to bring an Arab presence to Greek life, the organization worked towards becoming the first Arab sorority in the nation. On May 7, 2013, the Empowered Arab Sisterhood was officially inducted into the Greek council and granted its letters to become officially recognized as Epsilon Alpha Sigma, the first Arab sorority in the nation. With its strict philanthropic focus, the women of EAS have made an impact both on a local and global scale. As a strictly cultural organization, EAS expresses no religious or political affiliation but rather focuses on the humanitarian aspect of the conflicts plaguing our Arab countries today. Through this focus, we aim to expose our peers to the diversity that exists within the Arab world and the impact Empowered Arab Women make both within our immediate communities and all around the world.
