Political Awareness & Involvement



In March 1913, nearly six weeks after its founding, several Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Founders marched in the historic Suffragist March in Washington, D.C. This was 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.

Tucson Alumnae continues to lead discussions in Southern Arizona on voter registration, public education, affordable housing, access to affordable healthcare, immigration reform, financial literacy, etc. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is not a political entity but the organization and its members are strong advocates for issues that will improve the lives of minorities and those living in underserved communities.

Tucson Alumnae Chapter’s Social Action committee is charged with implementing programs aimed at advocating for, protecting and when necessary, restoring, and our rights as citizens. The committee is also charged with stimulating interest and participation in social action and keeping the chapter and community current on political issues.
