I agree. She and you both. That's good genes for you.


ETA: I just now got to read the article and I must say I count it a joy to have her as a SOROR. She is my SheRo.

Let's try it this way. Here is the link to the main page.

http://www.un.org/womenwatch/daw/csw...documents.html

The above link should work. Click on the link and page down to NGO Documents located at the bottom of the page. You are looking for

E/CN.6/2004/NGO/19 [ A C E F R S ]
Statement submitted by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority

Clink on the [E] in the parenthesis for English. You should be able to access the statement submitted by our Headquarters.


Thanks to Soror Ms. Public Service for passing this along. She had been trying to get it on GC but we cannot link for some reason, the PDF link. So you have to follow these steps.

Re: Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. CONTINUES to make History

On March 27, 2003, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, achieved
yet another great moment in its illustrious 90-year history.

The United Nations (UN) Department of Social and Economic Council
bestowed Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status upon Delta because
of the Sorority's commitment to political, social, and economic reform
around the world. The ceremony took place at the UN headquarters in New
York. Among the NGOs currently in existence, only 2 are African-American
organizations: National Council of Negro Women, and of course, Delta
Sigma Theta.
(It was not known by the ceremony attendees whether the
Links have acquired this status.)

This was an historic moment. As the UN Security Council met in a nearby
conference room discussing the situation in Iraq, Dr. Hanifa Mezoui,
Chief NGO Section Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the UN,
presented the NGO proclamation to President Gwendolyn Boyd during a
luncheon in the UN delegates' dining room.

According to a 2000 UN publication, "Basic Facts about the UN," about
1600 organizations have our consultative status with the UN, partnering
with the UN to provide our demonstrated special expertise, technical
knowledge, and experience to the UN in areas of health, economics, etc.

After the presentation of the proclamation, appointees of UN Secretary
General Kofi Annan, including Gillian Sorensen, Assistant Secretary
General for External Affairs (Ted Sorenson's wife), and others briefed
Deltas on issues of global advancement of women, elimination of violence
against women, state of the world's children, and women and aging.

Achieving NGO status is the result of a multi-year application process,
as President Gwendolyn Boyd envisioned one day achieving this honor.
Just imagine, the UN will now consult with Delta Sigma Theta on policy
and program matters of mutual concern to both groups. We will be
working directly with the UN to meet the objectives of its Charter.

By the way, we saw immediate benefits in our status as a newly minted
NGO when the UN bookstore was ordered re-opened after it closed at 5:00
pm so that the ladies in red could shop...smile



Soror Boyd, take a bow as well as all SORORS who helped make this happen.
Now this is what makes me proud to be a Delta!

Bishop urges blacks to show commitment to what's right
Sunday, June 27, 2004

Angela D. Chatman
Plain Dealer Reporter

African-Americans must espouse what is right even as they face challenges, one of the nation's top religious leaders said Saturday.

"Don't allow pressure to cloud your vision of what is right and what is wrong. Don't allow clutter to silence our voices," urged Bishop Vashti McKenzie, the first female bishop in the history of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

She cited several concerns of the black community. These include failing public schools; the billions spent in Afghanistan and Iraq while this country is unable to find the money to rebuild neighborhoods, and the military's successful hunt for Saddam Hussein while authorities cannot find the source of the crack cocaine that is brought into urban neighborhoods.

"Who will speak up against evil and atrocities that are happening in this 21st century?" asked McKenzie, preaching to people at PowerNetworking 2004, FraserNet Inc.'s third annual business networking conference at the Cleveland Convention Center.

Soror Wilma Rudolph Commemorative Stamp

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

United States Postal Service

Wilma Rudolph Press Release


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WASHINGTON — Wilma Rudolph, track and field legend, was honored today when the U.S. Postal Service issued a twenty-three cent definitive postage stamp recognizing her achievements. The first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony was held at 12:30 p.m. (PST) on the west steps of the State Capitol building, Sacramento, CA. The ceremonies were part of festivities surrounding the start of the 2004 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Track and Field, taking place July 9-18, at the Alex G. Spanos Sports Complex at California State University, Sacramento.

"The United States Postal Service is pleased to honor such a remarkable woman whose unforgettable smile will grace a new postage stamp in our Distinguished Americans stamp series," said Henry A. Pankey, Vice President, Emergency Preparedness, U.S. Postal Service, who dedicated the stamp. "At the Postal Service, we understand the power our stamps have in helping to celebrate special people — like Wilma Rudolph –- who has helped to define our world. In this small way, we have created a lasting tribute to her perseverance and accomplishments."

Joining Pankey to dedicate the stamp were U.S. Olympic medalists Bob Beamon, Michael Johnson, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Bob Mathias, Bill Mills and the celebrated Tennessee State Tigerbelle Olympians.

The Rudolph stamp is fifth in the Distinguished Americans series. It was designed by Richard Sheaff of Scottsdale, AZ. Artist Mark Summers of Waterdown, Ontario, Canada, created the portrait for the stamp, referencing a photograph of Rudolph taken after she won three gold medals at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. Summers also was the artist for the first four stamps in the Distinguished Americans series — Joseph W. Stilwell (2000), Claude Pepper (2000), Hattie W. Caraway (2001) and Edna Ferber (2002).

As host city for this first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony, Sacramento holds the unique distinction of being the nation’s only city where the stamp is available today. The stamp will be available at Post Offices and Philatelic Centers nationwide July 15.
