Happy Founder’s Day to the Ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, 105 years of service to the community.
Delta Sigma Theta, is a non-profit greek-letter organization that was founded by college-educated women to perform public service, bring awareness to government policy with an emphasis on the African American community.
Delta Sigma Theta, was founded on January 13, 1913 by 22 women college students at Howard University. The students wanted to promote and highlight academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need -human rights and civil rights. The sorority’s first public project was the Women’s Suffrage March in Washington, DC, March 1913. The sorority was incorporated in 1930.

Membership in the sorority is open to women who meet membership requirements, regardless of race, nationality and religion. Women may join through undergraduate chapters at a college or university, or after acquiring a college degree through an academic chapter.
Services are international: The Grand Chapter of 300,00 members consist of college educated African American, Caucasian, Asian, Native American, Hispanic and African women.
As a distinguished lady of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, we don’t see race, creed or politics but service for others.
