BELLE GLADE — Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.’s Social Justice Initiative focuses heavily on voting and community advocacy. One of the initiative’s goals is to empower communities to utilize their most powerful tool during local, state and national elections. In May 2023, the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.’s Mu Rho Omega Chapter partnered with the Women League of Voters to host a Seniors Voter Registration Drive at Glades Central Community High School in Belle Glade, Florida.
The event was an absolute success. Over 40 graduating Seniors were registered to vote. This means they will have the ability to use their voices in upcoming elections for years to come. Exercising the right to vote is important to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Participating in elections is one of the key freedoms of American life. No matter what you believe or whom you support, it is important to exercise your rights.
The Mu Rho Omega Chapter would like to extend a special thanks to the newly registered voters, the Principal of Glades Central Community High School, Melanie Bolden-Morris, the Women League of Voters along with the Social Justice Initiative Chairman, Tamika Payne and Co-Chairman Alysia Boldin.
