Greetings friends and members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated!
Welcome to the cyberspace home of Los Angeles South Bay Alumnae Chapter of Delta
Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, also known as the “Flagship of the Farwest.” Los
Angeles South Bay Alumnae Chapter was chartered August 28,1966 in Gardena, CA, by
the 13th National President, Geraldine P. Woods with seventeen distinguished 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. More than 55 years later we pride ourselves by following
the footsteps of our charter members and remain in the forefront of action as a voice
for the community.
I, along with members of this chapter are excited that you stopped by to visit our
website. For Delta sorors this website is intended to provide useful information, basic
tools and resources for the business of our sorority. For others, it is intended to provide
you with information about the programs, community service projects, and events that
we implement and sponsor.
Our chapter is very proud of the partnerships we have with the cities of Carson,
Gardena, Compton, and other cities within our service area. We have and continue to
partner with Compton College, California State University, Dominguez Hills, and
numerous other organizations throughout the South Bay area of Los Angeles. Some
programs include getting out to vote, feeding the homeless, Handbags of Hope for
women who are victims of domestic violence and providing supportive services to
women and children escaping domestic violence. We strive to collaborate closely with
both middle and high schools through our Delta Academy and Delta GEMS programs
which were created to help our youth achieve academic success. Invite others to visit
our website for more information about our programs.
Los Angeles South Bay members are totally committed to the vision of our twenty-two
(22) Founders as well as our Five-point Programmatic Thrust. They are:
∆ 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 elected and appointed positions in local and state government.
Our theme for 2022-2024 Biennium is:
