Delta Sigma Theta Sorority takes a “Stroll to the Polls”

The Atlanta Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated  along with the East Point/ College Park and Atlanta Suburban chapters in partnership with the Urban League of Greater Atlanta and  Atlanta NAACP, will put on a “Stroll to the Polls” event on Saturday, October 27, 2012.  Participants will gather 12:00pm at the Wayfield Grocery Store located at 3050 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.  At 1:00pm, everyone will stroll or march to the Adamsville Recreation Center. This event is open to the public.

The purpose of the “Stroll to the Polls” is to motivate and educate the citizens of
Atlanta on the importance of voting, especially the advantage of voting early.  Camille Zeigler, president of the Atlanta Alumnae Chapter mentioned that, “As a non-partisan organization, we do not endorse any candidate for the Office of President of the United States, nor do we endorse any local political official.  However, it is important for every citizen to exercise their right to vote, and vote for the candidate of your choice, which can influence decisions such as Roe vs. Wade, as well as your rights as an American citizen.”

State Representative Sheila Jones, a member of the Atlanta Alumnae Chapter, will make an appearance at this event along with Atlanta City Councilman C.T. Martin and other invited elected officials and civic leaders.. The goal is to reach as many registered voters in the community, and encourage them to cast their votes during the early voting process.

For more information regarding this event, you may contact Darlene Kimes, a member of the Atlanta Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. at (404) 955-9897.

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way. It was untapped.Kids in Africa start kicking a ball when they are six or seven years old, if not younger. http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net/ Coach Factory Outlet It's like baseball, basketball and football in America. If you're talented, people will find you. That's what http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com/ Coach Factory Outlet happened with soccer. The number of academies has grown rapidly, and people are really into it. As a http://www.coachoutletb1.com/ Coach Factory Online result, nearly every major soccer team has a lot of African players.Through my experience as a Nigerian player, http://www.coachoutlethcs.com/ Coach Outlet Online coach and now NBA executive, I believe basketball can follow a similar path. It starts with building facilities. We need http://www.coachoutletonlinegc.com/ Coach Outlet Online to start investing in outdoor courts and indoor gyms for kids to play.
