Social Action

Delta Sigma Theta has been committed to service through social action since our founding in 1913. Our 22 Founders participated in the Suffrage March of 1913, just two months after establishing the Sorority, and our members have been at the forefront of social and political struggles ever since.

Under the direction of the National Social Action Commission, Delta Sigma Theta mobilizes our members, chapters, and national leaders to advocate for the Sorority’s predetermined positions and objectives.  Delta Sigma Theta has become an integral part of the movement to secure equal political, educational, and economic rights for all Black people.

The Dover Alumnae Chapter and its members are engaged in a variety of social action activities focused on enacting laws and polices to sustain and expand the rights and privileges of citizenship to all people and to protect the most vulnerable amongst us. Locally these activities include:

  • Provide a platform of communication between citizens and candidates and/or legislatures
  • Promote enlightened citizenship by providing fact-based information to elected officials and voters
  • Collaborate with other Civic Organizations to discuss legislative priorities at the national, state, and local levels
  • Voter registration, education, and mobilization
  • Participate in Delta Days at the Nations Capital (DDNC), Delta Days at the United Nations and Delta Days at the State Capital.
