GET ENGAGED™ Social Action Initiative
Greetings, My Dear Sorors.
We are in a state of emergency in our communities. Increasingly, we are becoming desensitized by the violence that surrounds us in the media and in our daily lives. Sorors, we must not allow this to become our new normal. The violence – on all fronts – must end.
As a community-conscious, action-oriented organization, Zeta cannot and will not wait for someone else to solve our problems. Through our GET ENGAGED™ social action initiative, we will mobilize the communities we serve through education, service and advocacy. I ask that every chapter, undergraduate and graduate chapters alike, take action by doing EACH of the following activities by :
b. State and regional leadership should get creative to drive participation.
c. Involve the local media to spread the word beyond your networks.
b. Local chapters are encouraged to contact their Secretary of State Office or whoever is responsible for voter registration to obtain specific details on voter registration and voting requirements for your state.*
c. Social media graphics will be provided for participation in National Voter Registration Day.

While we typically take the summer off to regroup and re-energize, our communities cannot wait. They need our collective power now. Please act with urgency and create your plan of action now so that you are able to host your criminal justice, voter education and registration activity as soon as the new sorority year begins.
Please use the documents that our National GET ENGAGED™ Team has provided:
Additional information from the NAACP and NPHC Social Action Task Force, as well as other organizations, will be provided as received. Also note that GET ENGAGED™ webinars will be scheduled in the upcoming weeks for those who were unable to attend the Boulé workshops. Be sure to check upcoming Dove Notes for more information.
If there was ever a time to take action, it is today. Thank you for your continued support of Zeta and the communities that we serve.
