DELTA DAYS AT THE NATION'S CAPITAL

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 policymakers, members of the United States Congress, Congressional staff members, and national issues experts.

The activities of Delta Days in the Nation's Capital are briefings on legislative issues which impact the African-American community; skill development sessions such as How to Advocate Effectively, Understanding the Role of Congressional Staffers, How to Monitor and Track Legislation; and legislative visits to members of Congress. The participants, who come from all geographical areas of the country, also have opportunities to observe the legislators in session, participate in Senate Press Tours and White House briefings. Members of Delta and others with expertise on various issues, conduct the skills development and discussion sessions. In addition, the members also participate in the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Town Hall Meetings and conducts Delta Days at the State Capitol, Delta Days at City Hall, and Delta Days at the School Board.

SOCIAL ACTION SPOTLIGHT

We are extremely proud to have our beloved Delta Dear, Anita Moore Hackney, as a member of The Vallejo Alumnae Chapter and our Social Action Committee. Soror Moore Hackney has been a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. for over 70 years and has served in numerous positions in the name of Delta but the most important position and one that still remains close to her heart was as The National Social Action Commission Co-chair, serving under four National Presidents. In 1989, along with Soror Beverly E. Smith, Soror Gwendolyn E. Boyd, and Soror Althea T.L. Simmons, Soror Moore Hackney held the first "Delta Days In the Nations Capital" Committee Planning Meeting in her home. Her continued passion and advocacy for social issues has led to effective change in political awareness and involvement.

"Voting is a right that we have as Americans. If we don’t take advantage of that right, we are neglecting it. Our country has given us thousands of opportunities which sets it apart from other nations and voting is one of them. When we vote, we take pride in our right to choose!"

 

On March 3, 1913, nearly six weeks after its founding, several Founders of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. marched in the historic Women's Suffragist March under the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. banner, the Sorority's first public act. This paved the way for African-American women in politics.

 

The Vallejo Alumnae Chapter continues to identify ways to include opportunities for all citizens, specifically African- American voters, to exercise the power of their vote.
