About Fairfield County Alumnae Chapter

The Fairfield County Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered on December 1, 1979, by 31 Exceptional, Enthusiastic, and Committed Deltas who were determined to address the needs of the Fairfield County Area. From its inception and under the leadership of our first chapter president, Roxana Kelly, its legacy of service to the Fairfield County community was clearly established.  Today, the chapter is comprised of 100+ accomplished and dedicated women with outstanding leadership, planning, and execution skills who dedicate their considerable talent and professional expertise to Delta Sigma Theta’s national Five Point programmatic thrusts: Educational Development, Economic Development, Physical & Mental Health, Political Awareness & Involvement, and International Awareness & Involvement. 

Serving the communities of Bridgeport, Norwalk, Stamford, and Danbury since 1979, Fairfield County Alumnae Chapter (FCAC) is committed to social action and community programming activities that uplift, empower, and educate the community. The members of FCAC actively organize and host education enrichment programs (Delta Academy, Delta GEMS, and Delta EMBODI), social action programs (voter registration drives, letter writing campaigns to state and regional legislators, health fairs, and backpack programs for elementary school children) and more.
