WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Bob Menendez yesterday met with over two dozen Delta Sigma Theta Sorority members in his Washington, D.C. office. Members from the five chapters that represent South Jersey were in attendance. Delta Sigma Theta is an international non-profit organization made up of more than 200,000 predominately Black college-educated women who focus on community development and public service in African American communities. The sorority was in D.C. for their 30th Annual “Delta Days in the Nation’s Capital”.

“Every year I look forward to when the wonderful sisters of Delta Sigma Theta visit my D.C. office,” said Sen. Menendez. “From voting rights and gun safety to criminal justice reform and affordable health care, the sisters of Delta Sigma Theta are dedicated to creating a society that’s fair and just for everyone. I look forward to working closely with the Deltas on these critical issues throughout this year.”
