Welcome to our Website
I would like to reflect on the rich history and the powerful legacy of this dynamic sisterhood. On January 15, 1908 at Howard University, sixteen young, African-American Collegiate women committed themselves to a sisterhood which would provide various programs encompassing economic development, education, health promotion, strengthening the Black family, political awareness, and other community outreach programs.
On January 24th we will be honoring our 16 founders as we are committed to advancing their vision. We vow to continue the Legacy of sisterhood and service today, tomorrow, and beyond. As Alpha Gamma Omega Chapter moves towards 88 years of service, we will expand our community outreach programs serving greater Los Angeles. Our community activities and programs are centered around our Sorority’s Five Target Programmatic Thrust: Launching New Dimensions of Service which includes: Educational Enrichment (I), Environmental Ownership (IV), Family Strengthening (III), Global Impact (V), and Health Promotion (II).
In 1927, our charter members were
influential leaders for African-American achievement during a groundbreaking
period of time in our nation’s history. As inheritors of this rich legacy, we should not
take these accomplishments lightly. The women of Alpha Gamma Omega
Chapter strive to uphold and champion the efforts of our illustrious founders, charter
members, and all the Sorors who came before us.
Finally, I encourage you to be inspired by the trailblazers whose shoulders we so proudly stand upon, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, G. Carter Woodson, Thurgood Marshall, President Barack Obama, and many more. Remember we have so many things to be thankful for and so much to look forward to under the leadership of our Supreme President, Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson. Sorors let’s have a great year!
