Political Awareness and Involvement emphasizes the importance of being involved and educated on social and political issues that affect our community. These issues include, but are not limited to, voter registration, health, education, criminal justice system, employment, childcare, and international concerns. Some of our activities include annual participation in a legislative conference held in Sacramento, CA; voter registration drives; public safety awareness; providing unbaised information on local, state and national elections and initiatives; and supporting communication drives to local, state and federal elected officials in support or opposition to proposed legislation.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has been involved in “Social Action” since its inception in January 1993. The twenty two Founders were concerned with social welfare, academic excellence and cultural enrichment. In March 1913, our Founders marched in the historic
Suffrage March under the Delta Sigma Theta banner, which constitutes as the first public act of the sorority.
Since the chapter’s charter in June 30, 1979, Oakland East Bay Alumnae Chapter has planned and performed many “social action” activities and events under the guidance of the Five Point Program of the Sorority. The chapter has received many accommodations, and awards for its Social Action services.
