107 Years of Impactful Social Action

About this Event

The Chesterfield, Henrico, Petersburg and Richmond Alumnae Chapters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., cordially invite you to attend Delta Days at the Virginia General Assembly (DDVGA). The Social Action Committee of each chapter has been busy preparing for this important legislative conference. Please be reminded that our 22 young Founders used their collective strength to fight for social justice and for their voices to be heard during the political process. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the political and legislative process, and to advocate for those social issues emphasized by Delta Sigma Theta.

DDVGA will give you the opportunity to meet your state representatives and to make your concerns known. Social Action plays an increasingly important role in all our lives with issues including, but not limited to, educational equity, redistricting, women’s rights, and gun violence. It is imperative that we join forces in Richmond on January 26 - 27, 2020 to continue our legacy of advocacy and action. The time to act is now. Remember we must stay involved to protect our rights and those of generations to follow. We will provide important information to keep us “WOKE”!
