The Charlotte Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is hosting a Census and Voter Registration Rally, Sept. 26, 4-6 p.m., in the Hidden Valley neighborhood. The event is free and open to public. For safety, social distancing and masks will be required.
“For more than 75 years, Delta members have been engaged in the community,” chapter President Melody Harris said. “Completing the 2020 Census and the upcoming election are important events for everyone, especially African American residents. This occasion provides tools to empower our community.”
Beginning with a car procession at Faith CME Church, 457 Wellingford St., 100 members of the sorority will line up and drive around Hidden Valley, encouraging residents to register to vote and complete the 2020 Census.
At the conclusion of the procession, the event kicks off at Faith CME Church: volunteers will register voters, Census enumerators will help residents to complete the form, a DJ will provide music, and complimentary snacks will be distributed.
