Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Berkeley Bay Area Alumnae Chapter

Message from the President

President’s Message

Welcome! I bring you greetings on behalf of the 125 members of the Berkeley Bay Area Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., located in the “Fabulous Farwest Region”. We are pleased and delighted to have you visit our official website. March 30, 1934 marked a momentous occasion in the history of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the West Coast. Six dedicated and faithful women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, under the leadership of our 7th National President, Vivian Osborne Marsh, chartered Omega Sigma Chapter which is now Berkeley Bay Area Alumnae Chapter. For almost 80 years, Berkeley Bay Area Alumnae Chapter, the oldest alumnae chapter in Northern California, continues to be an active pillar in the Bay Area community by providing ongoing programs in the five-point programmatic thrusts of the Sorority:

  • Economic Development – providing support for the under-served
  • Educational Development – promoting academic excellence and providing scholarships
  • International Awareness and Involvement – encouraging participation in addressing issues that affect women and children around the world
  • Physical and Mental Health – increasing knowledge of health issues and disease prevention
  • Political Awareness and Involvement – educating and stimulating participation in establishing positive public policy

We appreciate that you are learning more about our chapter and programs and services that we provide, through which we endeavor to transform lives and positively impact the Bay Area community. We encourage you to visit our website often to stay abreast of our various programs, and to learn more about our fundraisers that support these projects. Yours in Service,

Linda Gunter Richardson
President, Berkeley Bay Area Alumnae Chapter
