Political Awareness and Involvement/Social Action

In March of 1913, nearly six weeks after its founding, several Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Founders marched in the historic Suffrage March under the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., 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.

The members of Phoenix Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter advocate for a range of social action initiatives, while non-partisan in nature and purpose, we educate the community as appropriate or necessary to do so
