GET ACTIVE WITH
From the sorority's first public act of participating in the historic Women's Suffragist March just six weeks after its founding in January 13, 1913 through today, our sorority is committed to the betterment of our society through social action.
The Social Action Committee has been enlisted by Grand Chapter to help mobilize the African-American family for the 21st Century. The Committee has created links with other organizations within the greater St. Louis community that share the sorority's vision of public service. The committee will support the work of these local organizations and agencies that are active in educating and empowering African-Americans in social, economic, political and cultural issues. The Social Action Committee also provides ongoing information and updates to enhance functional knowledge of and involvement in social action issues.
Additionally, the Social Action Committee will tackle issues surrounding political awareness and involvement. In these areas, the Social Action Committee will address quality of life issues and effect positive change on legislation affecting the African-American community. The committee will also seek to open channels of dialogue with public policy makers, jurists, and legislators through participation in Delta Days at the National level as well at the State level.
The St. Louis Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter is working on several Social Action Initiatives and you can help us and our community. Take some time to review the initiatives below.
