International Awareness and Involvement Chair
International Awareness and Involvement program has an extensive history of involvement in international issues, including human rights and developing infrastructure. This involvement has led to the participation in projects related to addressing the needs of diverse cultures and global initiatives. As a chapter, we are here to expresses our empathy and committed support for our brothers and sisters around the globe who live in impoverished conditions without adequate nourishment, education, medical treatment and basic sustenance. We continue to observe World AIDS Day, send needed clothes and shoes to Glory House Services (Haiti), and support to the Sorority’s International Awareness and Involvement Sustainability Plan.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. supports World AIDS Day, observed annually on December 1, as a global initiative. The Leavenworth Alumnae Chapter partners with local organizations in our service area in bringing awareness to AIDS and HIV through community education. Education begins with our youth and LAC addressed the issue of AIDS and HIV awareness among the young ladies of our Delta GEMS/Delta Academy, explaining the universal symbolism of the red ribbon as a show of awareness and support of those living with HIV.
