With the current state of our government and policies, the Social Action calendar has been full as the committee has been working overtime to serve as a vehicle for advocacy while effecting social change and public policy. During the previous election period, the committee held a candidates forum for all candidates to introduce themselves and speak about their platforms. The committee continued their efforts by hosting voter education/mobilization panels, voter registration drives, and various other events to keep voters informed about one-stop voting, absentee ballots, and election day voting.
The committee also spent a great amount of time this year with the Delta Days initiative. There was a Delta Days at the School Board. Sorors attended Delta Days at the Nations Capital, where they contributed to increase legislative members’ involvement in the national public policy-making process.
The Western Wake Alumnae Chapter previously hosted Delta Day at the NC General Assembly. Topics discussed included sensible gun reform, human trafficking, and redistricting. Overall the event was a success with with hundreds of Deltas advocating for the communities that we serve across North Carolina. There is “Power in our Voices: Deltas We are the Change”.
