Welcome to the online home of the Dynamic and Historic Eastern Region of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The Eastern Region is the birthplace of our distinguished sisterhood, where in 1913 the hopes, dreams and prayers of 22 Howard University female students led to the founding of our Sorority. Today sorors from the Eastern Region and around the world honor the legacy of our Founders as we touch hundreds of thousands of lives by improving communities through service, leadership and empowerment.

From our historic roots 126 active chapters now represent the Eastern Region, which consists of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, DC. International chapters of the Eastern Region include: England, Germany, and the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Croix and St. Thomas).

We are excited to serve as the leaders of an extraordinary group of women committed to fulfilling the vision and purpose of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as we render public service, impact public policy and maintain a high standard of academic excellence; all while ensuring Delta's relevance with each succeeding decade.

Keeping Excellence and Purpose in the East,

    April 14th marks a year ago more than 270  young girls were kidnapped from school and  Nigeria. Presently, more than 230 remain  missing. Yet, the international community has  largely forgotten.
    The grass roots movement of Bring Back Our Girls suggests that the following can be done in commemoration:

  1. People are urged to use Social Media to REMIND the world that the girls are still missing
  2. Send a letter to send to Secretary of State Kerry, the UN, the WhiteHouse and US Senators ( sample letter)

Sorors please use Social Media effectively and according to our D.I.G.   On April 14th and going foward share our social media posts with the BRING BACK OUR GIRLS photo(s) on your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts   BRING BACK OUR GIRLS photo
