From participating in the Women’s Suffrage March & Movement in March 1913 to this moment, Delta has shaped and will continue to shape the landscape of politics and history in the United States. From voter registration and turn-out to policy-making, Delta continues to push justice and fairness in every way of our culture and life. Social Action is achieved under the direction of the Sorority’s National Social Action Commission.
HMAC has been at the forefront of local political action in the Houston community. Each year, regardless of the election type or legislative agenda, HMAC activates a robust Voter Registration and Voter Rights Education Tour, which includes registering eligible voters at various community sites including area high schools, and hosting a series of voter education forums. Signature to the Chapter is the two-segment Active Shooter/Gun Control – Conversation with Cops Community Forum that targets all community members and people of color, to open dialog about the relationships between people and guns and the community and the law enforcement agencies that serve them. Eracism: Erasing Racism in America is the newest Signature community impact event that gathers the state’s brightest minds and industry leaders to lead a candid conversation on race in the workplace, the classroom/education and in the mental health industry and how this negatively impacts people of color.
HMAC Social Action Committee (SAC) is vested in collective policy creation by participating in Delta Days in the Nations Capitol, Delta Days at the UN, Delta Days in Austin, and Delta Days at City Hall (Houston).
