Political Awareness & Involvement

Stone Mountain-Lithonia Alumnae’s Political Awareness and Involvement Committee is based on the sorority’s concern for the public’s “need to know” and understand the importance of an informed electorate. As members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority we have been given the charge to be involved and empowered through affecting change at every governing level. We are committed to identifying and addressing critical issues and legislation that can potentially impact the lives of our members and their communities, such as education, voting rights, and gun violence.

This committee will continue to work in partnership with the Social Action Committee of the chapter to develop and implement programming that will influence the political process locally, statewide, and nationally. Past initiatives to expose our youth to the political process will be continued as well as a continued focus on voter registration and voter turnout. Particular attention will be brought to national and state issues concerning voting rights and gun violence prevention through symposiums and educational forums throughout the community.
