January 18, 2016 was a cold and blistering Monday morning. Warm beds and comfy pillows beckoned for us to stay in and enjoy our “day off,” but a higher duty from the Connections Committee called, and Mu Kappa Omega answered!  Yes, with purpose and determination, members painted Downtown Houston Pink and Green, armed and ready with Voter Registration tools as we invited citizens to sign up to practice and protect their right to vote.

Our coalition with the local radio station MAJIC 102 and its #MY VOTE MY VISION” drive proved successful as we got some great ACTION shots as well as an interview with television station KTRK (Channel 13) in Houston. Next came the Parade, and with amazing pageantry and grace, Mu Kappa Omega proudly waved to cheering and adoring Houstonians who were whipped into a frenzy as they strode past. Not only pretty, but PURPOSEFUL as we got things done: ON YOUR DAY OFF!
