Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated
As a community-conscious, action-oriented organization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., engages our communities by raising awareness on key issues, promoting voter registration, building and fostering relationships with local and national elected officials, and encouraging qualified women and minorities to pursue leadership positions within their communities.
Since its founding, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has engaged in social action activities to protect the rights of our communities and promote legislative action. Zeta has developed Get Engaged, a Z-HOPE initiative designed to address the underlying issues that are contributing to the senseless killing of African Americans in the U.S.
Our objectives are threefold:
Drive individual and community engagement in the underlying issues that are destroying our communities and augment an understanding of the benefits and consequences of action or inaction.
Empower citizens through knowledge sharing and fostering collective responsibility among community members.
Cultivate a culture of mutual respect in our communities.
In the 1980's, Zeta increased its visibility on Capitol Hill as more members worked for government agencies. Sorority Leadership soon began to meet regularly with government officials, and organized Zeta Day on the Hill to demonstrate this action. Each year, hundreds of members visit Washington, D.C. to voice our community's concerns with members of Congress and to learn about pressing issues.
