Political Awareness

In March of 1913, nearly six weeks after its founding, several Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Founders marched in the historic Suffragist March under the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Banner, 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, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.continues to institute activities that foster:

 

  1. Sponsoring Voter Registration and voter education programs

  2. Combating Voter Suppression

  3. The full restoration of voting rights for individuals who have paid their debt to society (ex-offenders)

  4. Affordable Health Care and access to quality health care

  5. Financial Literacy and Economic Empowerment

  6. Support for HBCU’s

  7. Political Awareness and Involvement

  8. Gender Equality

  9. Racial Profiling

 

The Little Rock Alumnae Chapter is very active in Social Action and encouraging Political Awareness. Some of our initiatives are:

 

  1. Where Do We Go From Here?

  2. Delta Days at State Capital

  3. Voter Registration - Get out and Vote

  4. “Delta Hot Spots” – Sorors consistently attending meeting (i.e. school board, city council etc.)

  5. Participate in Martin Luther King Service Day events (partnerships) vs participate in the parade

  6. Partner and Provide awareness with community groups/forums 

  7. Provide awareness for legislative updates (i.e, bills, budget changes and ballot issues)
