Special to The Chronicle

The Winston-Salem Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority began its initiative of building strategic community partnerships.

Under the leadership of the Political Awareness/Social Action Committee, the sorority will engage law enforcement and various community organizations in educational dialogue. The goal is to educate chapter members and Winston-Salem residents regarding local law enforcement policies and procedures, to build relationships, and to enhance visibility and accessibility.  Sorority members will share the education they receive with the community and other organizations.

On Saturday, Dec. 19, the sorority along with some Winston-Salem residents held a dialogue with Police Chief Barry Rountree and Assistant Police Chief Wilson Weaver.  Chapter members and residents asked various questions of Rountree and Weaver about issues such as minor traffic violations, domestic violence, home invasions, gang activities, and human trafficking.

The discussion extended beyond the allotted time and the sorority vowed to invite law enforcement back for future dialogues.  These events are open to the public and are held at the Delta Fine Arts Center.

Denise “DD” Adams is chair of the Political Awareness/Social Action Committee and Elizabeth Newton is president of the Winston-Salem Alumnae Chapter.
