In March of 1913, several Founders marched in the historic Suffrage March under the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. banner. 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 Social Action Committee. Through Social Action there is an increased knowledge of both domestic and foreign issues and how these issues effect the needs of African American people.
Our local chapter has been involved in our community instituting the following programs: Census, Go Red Army Day, voter registration drives, combating voter suppression drives, and letter writing campaigns to local Congressional members. Members also participate in local elections serving as election judges, precinct chairs, poll watchers, and have membership in political parties. Our members have also attended and participated in Delta Days in the Nation’s Capital events in Washington D.C.
