Dressed in red, Delta Sigma Theta sorority members blanket Capitol Hill

  • Dressed in their traditional red from head to toe, sorority sisters of all ages walked from one lawmakers' office to another, vowing to see as many Congress members as possible.
  • Throughout the day there was an air of enthusiasm, mixed with frustration, as the sorority sisters acknowledged, it was a critical time to reach their representatives, who held the keys to blocking or unlocking legislation that would directly impact their lives.
  • The federal legislative proposals Stepps and other sorority sisters are championing include: supporting voting rights, strengthening gun background checks, requiring colleges to report hazing incidents, decriminalizing marijuana, reforming the criminal justice system, and banning discrimination against hair texture or styles associated with a particular race or national origin.
  • Sarahjini Nunn Spencer, the Midwest Regional Director of the Deltas stood outside McConnell's office with a group of about 50 sorors.
