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.
In March of 1913, nearly six weeks after its founding, several Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Founders marched in the historic Suffragist March under the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Banner, the Sorority's first public act. Today, low voter turnout statistics highlight the need to continue to identify ways to include opportunities for all citizens to exercise their voting power.

In 1989, the National Social Action Commission instituted Delta Days in the Nation's Capital, an annual legislative conference to increase members' involvement in the national public policy-making process. The annual conference includes legislative briefings, issue forums, and advocacy skills development. Featured speakers include key policy makers, members of the United States Congress, Congressional staff members, and national issues experts.
The activities of Delta Days in the Nation’s Capital are briefings on legislative issues which impact the African-American community; skill development sessions such as “How to Advocate Effectively,” “Understanding the Role of Congressional Staffers,” How to Monitor and Track Legislation;” and legislative visits to members of Congress. The participants, who come from all geographical areas of the country, also have opportunities to observe the legislators in session, participate in Senate Press Tours and White House briefings. Members of Delta and others with expertise on various issues conduct the skills development and discussion sessions. In addition, the members also participates in the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Town Hall Meetings, and conducts Delta Days at the State Capitol, Delta Days at City Hall, and Delta Days at the School Board.
FCAC Members had the pleasure to paint Washington DC Red along with more than 1200 Sorors from March 10-13. As a collective we were donned as The Red Army "Delta Milaje" by our National Chaplin. During this pivotal gathering we were armed with information and charged to "Stay Woke, Be Intentional & Relentless" until change occurs. We were reminded that our government has "Authority", however, "We The People" have the "Power". It is our mission to hold elected officials accountable between elections. Silence is consent and we are not going to remain silent. We are commissioned for Social Action and will bear the torch for the next generation. Join us as we strive to Be A Change Agent.
