Apalachin Alumnae Uses Day of Solidarity to Strategize and Pray


Submitted by Karima Legette

On June 20, 2020, the tiny but mighty sorors of the Apalachin Alumnae chapter stood in solidarity with sorority members across the globe for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated’s Day of Solidarity. In the spirit of the sorority’s beloved Founders and the many seasoned members and Delta Dears of their chapter with active histories of battles for Civil Rights, Equal Pay and Social Justice, Black Lives Matter and the current calls to Defund the Police, they called on the love of God that eradicates all evil and provide comfort to all those in need.

Just a few days after the chapter’s Meet the Candidates for Family Court Judge in the local area, 10 Apalachin Alumnae chapter members were now masked and poised to pray as a group to ask for guidance and protection for the current Black Lives Matter global movement and communities of color. Members gathered in the driveway of the home of Social Action Chair and Delta Dear, Brenda Brown. The surrounding landscape was decorated with liberation flags and the colors of red, black and green, along with the names of the many lives stolen violently in unjust ways from Abner Louima in 1997 to Ahmaud Arbery George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Rayshard Brooks in 2020.

Chapter Chaplain and Delta Dear Sandra Love led with a powerful and inspiring call for God’s presence at the event and everyone’s deep understanding of how far and wide his love truly is. Member Stacy Marrow followed with a switch of style and cadence praying for her sisters in Delta taking action in so many areas for the benefit of Black and Brown lives. Her cries for support of local chapter members on the front lines of the current protest and calls for justice as well as those in the background and boardrooms taking action from those lines in the battle as well.

Chapter members continued in fellowship for a short time discussing changes to polling locations and plans to work for the presidential primary that was held on June 23, 2020.
