Elections 2020

The Houston Alumnae Chapter (HAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered in 1927 as the first Houston area chapter of the not-for-profit, public service sorority. With a financial membership of more than 500 college-educated women, HAC has provided community service, educational scholarships and social advocacy in the Houston community for 93 years.

Even in the midst of a pandemic, civic engagement through registration, education and mobilization are cornerstones of our commitment to social advocacy. HAC is dedicated to ensuring that members of the Houston community have an opportunity to engage with those persons who are seeking to serve and represent them on a local, state and national level.

The 2020 Virtual Candidates Forum offers just such an opportunity.

This live-streamed and moderated event will offer the viewing public a chance to hear directly from candidates and to also submit questions for those candidates appearing on the panel. We invite all citizens of the greater Houston area to join us for this virtual forum on September 19, 2020. Preliminary presentations will begin at 9:30 a.m.
