In the petition, the students demanded that "Theta Chi be investigated, shut down, and the fraternity’s president, as well as pledge masters," be investigated for their involvement with the death of Luke Tyler. The petition read:

"On January 22, 2023 Luke Tyler was found dead in his dorm at Washington State university. His death directly followed a long and cruel pledging process allowed by his fraternity, theta chi. Their inhumane and cruel hazing forced Luke, and many others to do things nobody should ever be forced to do.

It added:

"Luke was truly an amazing person with an incredible affect on everyone whose life he touched, he deserves Justice. Please sign to bring awareness to our cause and help bring WSU’s attention to this issue so that those responsible see appropriate consequences, and to help prevent anybody else from being hurt."
