Upon recognizing one another at various rallies and protests around their community, they decided to meet to discuss different issues surrounding the university and outside community. They came to the realization that the minority population was an under represented group and formed Latinos Siempre Unidos to act as an organized voice and a unified force... The Kyodrowe Chapter was established at the University at Buffalo in November of 2002. This chapter was founded by 8 men in search of creating an organized voice with goals and substance unparalleled to any other organization on campus. In the Spring of 2004, eight new men crossed into this Brotherhood, furthering the success of the chapter. Fall of 2005 welcomed the newest member of our chapter.
