|Subject:||Resolution Honoring Members of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.|
|In the near future, I will be introducing a resolution recognizing “Delta Day” in Pennsylvania. This year, Delta Day will occur on May 23, 2017.
As you may know, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded in 1913 by twenty-two diligent collegiate women on the campus of Howard University. Now, the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has become the largest African American women’s organization in the United States. For more than a century, the sorority has worked to follow the principles of economic and community development, social and political action, and educational and professional advancement service, leadership, and empowerment.
Currently, the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has 21 statewide chapters from Philadelphia to Allegheny and Chester to York counties. Throughout the past fourteen years, Delta members have traveled through the halls of the Capitol in order to connect with elected officials, advance legislation, and serve as a voice for others. The women of Delta Sigma Theta continue to be magnificent examples of servant-leaders with their commitment to their communities and focusing on education funding and equality in social justice.
Following the lead of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, I believe it is important that we, as legislators, do our part to promote education, professional advancement, and equality in social justice.
Please consider joining me as a sponsor of this legislation.
