Many of us have sister-friends, biological sisters, and best friends. Yet, the bonds we create in our Sisterhood of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated stands unmatched and beyond measure. The vision of 22 women gave birth to what is now our profound connection that spans across the globe.
The commitment of our founders and the work of our leaders made space for the Jamaica Alumnae Chapter. We are thankful for our 11 chartering sorors and we commit to carry the torch forward to become an indelible force in the Caribbean.
Our work is vast, commitment unquestionable and heart for service at the center of all that we do.
We are Delta women. We are changemakers.

This was complemented with First Place Awards for Excellence in Programming Educational Development and Exemplary Arts and Letters programming. JAC has won five awards in the past two regional conference cycles with incredible support from Southwest Region sorors, Delta sorority sisters across the globe, and outstanding community partners.
