Political Awareness and Involvement

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has a rich legacy of social action. The first public act of the sorority was participation in the march for women's suffrage (voting rights) in March 1913 down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.  The sorority commemorated this act during the celebration of our Centennial in 2013. 


The Quaker City Alumnae chapter continues this involvement in the Philadelphia community by conducting voter registration drives and political candidate forums.  Quaker City Alumnae Chapter hosts an annual Delta Day at Philadelphia's City Council, where the chapter invites the public to join them at a City Council meeting, followed by a closed question and answer session with various council members.


We also attend Delta Days at the Nation's Capital, an annual legislative conference to increase members' involvement in the national public policy-making process. The annual conference includes legislative briefings, issue forums, and advocacy skills development. Featured speakers include key policy makers, members of the United States Congress, Congressional staff members, and national issues experts.
