W E L C O M E
Welcome to the official website of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Iota Epsilon Omega Chapter!
Chartered in 1971, Iota Epsilon Omega Chapter has been a positive force in Bergen County, New Jersey for fifty years! We have dedicated ourselves to providing service not only to the residents of Bergen County but to all of mankind. You have seen us over the decades as we registered voters, beautified the neighborhoods, educated our youth, sponsored the Arts, and brought a variety of programs and services related to health, economics, and education. We have provided over $350,000 in scholarships to the youth of Bergen County!
Under the direction of our International President Danette Anthony Reed, the program thrust for the 2022-2026 administration is Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood.
With the theme Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood, the 2022-2026 administration seeks to build upon Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s rich legacy of service by galvanizing our sisterhood of more than 120,000 active members to lead on the front lines of change, education, and advocacy.
This administration has six initiatives. Strengthen Our Sisterhood will serve as the administration’s “Foundation Initiative” as we strengthen our bonds to support our service mission. For more than a century, our sisterhood has served as the foundation for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority to be an indomitable force for good—in our communities, states, nation, and the world. We will intentionally take time to fellowship and form lifelong relationships based on affinity, love, trust, respect, and shared goals and interests, while concurrently building on our foundation to serve others.
The remaining five initiatives will serve as the “Program Initiatives” which include:
Initiative 2: Empower Our Families
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority has a strong history of supporting and servicing families, for we understand a healthy family is the foundation of a healthy community.
We will take a multi-generational approach to fortify families within our communities by addressing child hunger and promoting positive youth development and leadership, mental well-being, and senior life.
Initiative 3: Build Our Economic Wealth
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority is launching our most progressive and revolutionary economic initiatives this century. This administration has created institutional-level solutions to combat institutional-level challenges.
We will further encourage and equip our members to place key strategies into action to build personal, organizational, and community economic wealth.
Initiative 4: Enhance Our Environment
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority has the power to galvanize our organization of more than 120,000 active members, create a ripple effect, and make a significant impact on our environment.
We will employ select strategies to optimize our collective ability and to improve and protect the environment at scale. We will prioritize activities that promote the adoption of more sustainable and responsible practices.
Initiative 5: Advocate for Social Justice
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority always has been at the forefront of social justice to promote fairness and equity. We stand in the gap to empower our communities and act in the best interests of all people through social advocacy and justice.
We will equip communities with the tools, knowledge, and support to activate their voices and mobilize self-help to empower communities to help themselves.
Initiative 6: Uplift Our Local Community
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority reigns supreme in its mission of “Service to All Mankind.” Given the engagement of more than 1,046 chapters across an international landscape, we have an ongoing history and reputation for making a global impact through local change.
We will celebrate excellence, promote a focus on service, and stimulate effective culture and showcase best practices—”Local Change, Big Impact, and Global Showcase.”
Iota Epsilon Omega Chapter is excited to continue implementing programs and activities under the Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood administration. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our organization and chapter, and we hope you will join in our efforts as we continue to be of service to all of mankind.
Yours in Service,
