Five-Point Programmatic Thrust
making the difference
We take pride in working with community partners and beyond to bring relevant programs and projects to the community. Each initiative is researched and designed to meet the needs of our focus areas within Loudoun County.
CIVIC AND SOCIAL ACTION
Each of Delta’s programmatic initiatives has an advocacy component that is implemented under the auspices of the National Social Action Commission, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Loudoun County Alumnae Chapter Social Action committee working together with our partner organizations NAACP Loudoun and Minority Student Achievement Advisory Committed (MSAAC) conduct programs that facilitate Political Awareness and Advocacy as it pertains to Equity in Education: Voter registration and Education and Criminal Justice Reform.
Financial Fortitude is part of our Economic Development thrust. Our projects have ranged from helping teens set and define financial goals information sessions for Loudoun residents on entrepreneurship and how to put a successful financial plan into action as well as an identity theft prevention and awareness seminar for seniors.
Events are hosted throughout the year and will be listed on our calendar.
