Sigma Gamma Rho just released the following statement about the presidential election and sent it to WatchTheYard.com to share with the public.
Cary, N.C. November 9, 2016 – Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. congratulates the 2016 United States election winners and trusts that the new era in politics will serve those often left out of the public discourse. We ask that our political leaders view our sorority as a partner to achieve greater progress in the areas of civic and social action, education, healthcare and leadership development. These matters of public concern are at the heart of our mission and essential to our 94-year history.
“We are gratified by the activism of our membership who worked countless hours throughout the campaign season to get out the vote; provided voter education; supported candidates at the local, regional, state and federal levels; worked the election polls and engaged in other activities to uphold our democracy,” said Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority International President Deborah Catchings-Smith.
As we all prepare for the new administrations taking office around the country, our sorority leaders and members remain vigilant about holding our elected officials accountable for the issues that impact our communities and insist that they deliver on the promise of our United States Constitution. We stand ready to serve.
