In March of 1913, nearly six weeks after its founding, several Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Founders marched in the historic Women’s Suffrage March, the Sorority’s first public act. Today, low voter turnout statistics highlight the need to continue to identify ways to include opportunities for all citizens to exercise their voting power. Each of Delta’s programmatic initiatives has an advocacy component that is implemented under the auspices of social action when it is appropriate or necessary to do so.
Under the auspices of the National Social Action Commission, Southfield Alumnae Chapter continues to institute activities focused on:
- Voter education and voter registration programs
- Combating Voter Suppression
- The full restoration of voting rights for individuals who have paid their debt to society (ex-offenders)
- Affordable Health Care and access to quality health care
- Financial Literacy and Economic Empowerment
- Support for HBCUs
- Political Awareness and Involvement
- Gender Equality
- Racial Profiling
- Voter education and registration programs for eligible students in service area high schools
Announcement of events are made via press releases, social media, and the chapter website. For additional information, please contact SocialAction@deltasac.org.
