International Awareness and Involvement
For World AIDS Day, DST co-sponsors events that provide HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. On December 1st of each year, we add our voices to the worldwide conversation about this disease that disproportionally affects our community. We also support broader international projects such as Thika Memorial Hospital in Kenya and the Delta House in Swaziland.
Physical and Mental Health Awareness
Journey to Wellness, a signature physical and mental health “call to action”, was developed to promote African-American families living holistic and healthy lives. The three-pronged approach includes 1) physical activity and healthy eating, 2) managing chronic diseases and 3) mental health. Our health programs advocate the importance and benefits of lifestyle changes that affect longevity, morbidity and mortality and seek to address health disparities in the access and delivery of public health services. The Empowering Strong Minds initiative focuses on mental health and the Empowering Our Sisters program focuses on holistic health for women and girls ages 11 and up.
Political Awareness and Involvement
Delta Days in the Nation’s Capital, Delta Days at the United Nations and Delta Day in the State Capital provide vehicles for members to actively engage with elected representatives on a wide variety of issues ranging from educational funding to economic concerns to social justice. Our members are also encouraged to attend local school board, city and county meetings. The Get Out The Vote initiative in partnership with the New Castle County chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) sponsors voter registration drives and non-partisan voter education forums in the local community.
