Over 50 Years of Scholarship, Sisterhood, and Service
Greetings and Welcome to the website of the Los Angeles South Bay Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., also known as the “Flagship of the Farwest.” Los Angeles South Bay was chartered fifty-three (53) years ago in Gardena, CA, by sixteen dedicated and determined women who saw a need to have a chapter in the South Bay and the South Central areas of Los Angeles after the Watts riot.
I, along with members of this chapter are grateful that you stopped by to visit. It is my hope that you will learn more about our chapter and the work that we are doing.
For the past forty-two (42) years, we have hosted our Annual Fashion Show and Scholarship Luncheon as our staple fundraiser. The proceeds from this and all other chapter sponsored fundraiser events enable us to award many scholarships to young deserving graduating high school seniors. This year, our 43rd Annual Soiree and Scholarship Luncheon featuring FLAIR, Ebony Fashion Revue, will be on Sunday, December 8, 2019. For more information, visit the Events page of this website. You do not want to miss this exquisite extravaganza!
Our chapter is very proud of the partnership we have with the City of Carson, CA. We have partnered with numerous other organizations in getting out the vote, feeding the homeless, Handbags of Hope for women who are victims of domestic violence and provide supportive services to the women of the His Sheltering Arms Shelter for women and children escaping domestic violence. We strive to work closely with both elementary and middle schools throughout the South Bay area of Los Angeles to help combat illiteracy. Visit our programs page to learn more about what we do and to take advantage of these community services designed for the youth. The Delta Academy and GEMS Programs 2019 – 2020 applications are now posted in the Programs section of this website.
Los Angeles South Bay members are totally committed to the five point programmatic thrust of our sorority and the vision of our twenty-two (22) Founders.
- Economic Development,
- Educational Development,
- International Awareness
- Involvement, Physical and Mental Health
- Political Awareness and Involvement.
Our chapter’s history has been a rich one in the Farwest Region. Members in our chapter serve on local, regional, and national levels of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as well as serve in elected and appointed positions in local and state government positions.
We hope that you will enjoy learning more about the great commitment we have for the community and for our youths. Visit often to learn about the upcoming community events sponsored by our chapter, review our picture gallery of community service, and be a part of the “Flagship of The Farwest” family.
