98 years ago today, 22 women from Howard University collaborated together in the face of discrimination and women's suffrage. Through much difficulty and perseverance, the founders incorporated the Greek-letter sorority, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  Delta Sigma Theta public service sorority is dedicated to the community, the country, and women all over the world. With more than 200,000 members and 900 chapters, Delta continues its dedication to its five point thrust:
  • Economic Development
  • Educational Development
  • International Awareness and Involvement
  • Physical and Mental Health
  • Political Awareness and Involvement
Happy Founder's Day, Sorors!
