Greetings from the hard working, dynamic and tenacious Tucson Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., charted in Tucson June 24, 1967 by 14 dynamic and determined women, spearheaded by Mauvolene F. Thomas. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., was founded on the campus of Howard University by 22 illustrious women on January 13, 1913. I am humbled to lead a chapter that has been serving the greater Southern Arizona region for the past 55 years. Providing Tucson, Sierra Vista and surrounding communities with programs that align with our Five-Point Programmatic Thrusts: Economic Development,

Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health and Political Awareness and Involvement, which are designed to meet the unique needs of our community, is at the forefront of what we do. As part of the Educational Development Thrust, we currently have our youth initiative programs Delta GEMS in Tucson, Delta Academy in both Tucson and Sierra Vista, and hope to expand our EMBODI program in our local communities. Our Economic Development team will focus on financial fortitude and financial security. Our International Awareness and Involvement team will be collaborating with area refugee organizations to support recently displaced refugees. Our Physical/Mental Health team will be providing programming that focuses on the whole mind, body and spirit and have partnered with the Good Health Wins initiative and NCNW to do our part to combat COVID and other health related issues. Our Political Awareness and Involvement team will be working hard to ensure that our voices are heard by registering voters, working with our State Social Action team to develop resolutions related to water conservation in the state, and participating in both Delta Days at the State and National Capitol. We are COMMITTED to community service projects that positively impact members of our community.
The members of Tucson Alumnae Chapter stand poised and more committed than ever to bring programming that is relevant, insightful and meets the needs of all ages in our communities. The pandemic brought about its challenges and has had lingering effects in the community related to health disparities, physical and mental health, lack of human connection, social justice unrest, voter suppression and so much more. We have maintained solid relationships with community leaders and members as well as organizations that allow us to have a larger impact on African American and communities of color, which are disproportionately under-served and underrepresented locally, regionally, and nationally.
Thank you so very much for visiting our website and please feel free to reach out to us with a desire to form partnerships, prepare and execute programming or request additional information about what we do to impact change in our community.
