The Quaker City Alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered on October 17, 1976. For more than four decades, our purpose has been to enhance the city of Philadelphia through our public-service programs, which support our sorority’s national Five-Point Programmatic Thrust. Our chapter members are dedicated to emulating the ideals and values of our 22 illustrious Founders to support, uplift, and directly impact the African-American community in Philadelphia.
