Regional Conference Highlights SOUTH ATLANTIC REGION ▲ JULY 10-13, 2014 ▲ RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA Deltas of the South Atlantic Region arrived in Raleigh, North Carolina armed with bags of new and gently used business attire to donate to InterAct, a private nonprofit organization that provides safe-ty, support and awareness to survivors of domestic violence and rape/sexual assault. The organization also promotes violence-free relationships and communities through col-laboration, public information, education and advocacy. Members of Raleigh Alumnae Chapter’s Domestic Violence Committee coordinated a domestic violence awareness event at Crabtree Valley Mall that includ-ed speakers and displays from InterAct, Wake County Domestic Task Force, Legal Aid of North Carolina, Cary Police Department, Raleigh Police Department and Wake County Schools Social Workers. Each organization pro-vided informational handouts and had representatives on hand to answer questions about their services. Regional Service Project Chair, Lillian Davis, is passionate about being an advocate for victims of domestic violence. “Although this is a sensitive subject, we are committed to breaking the silence against domestic violence,” said Davis. 10 • Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
