Social  Action

Social Action Mission:  to promote leadership, advocacy, and empowerment to effect social change and public policy.

Social Action is the vehicle through which the Sorority establishes a position on an emerging or perennial public issue, determines the action to be taken, and directs the actions of members, chapters and representative bodies. Each of Delta’s programmatic initiatives has an advocacy component that is implemented under the auspices of social action when it is appropriate or necessary to do so.

Current local initiatives:

  • Voter Registration
  • Community Issues and Candidate Forums
  • Voter Education and Mobilization
  • Voting Protection

DELTA DAYS

In 1989, the National Social Action Commission instituted Delta Days in the Nation’s Capital, an annual legislative conference to increase members’ involvement in the national public policy-making process. The annual conference includes legislative briefings, issue forums, and advocacy skills development. Featured speakers include key policy makers, members of the United States Congress, Congressional staff members, and national issues experts.

At the state level, Delta Days is held in Atlanta, GA.  This legislative forum is periodically conducted to bring Deltas from across the state to meet with their state representatives and senators to engage in dialogue on issues and bills that are of importance to their personal and communal well-being.
