Tri Delta’s commitment to create an equitable and inclusive lifetime membership experience for Tri Delta’s Black, Indigenous and Sisters of Color by identifying and dismantling systemic racism; promoting education, understanding and healing; and fighting for equality and justice.
Tri Delta celebrated the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King by partnering with the National Civil Rights Museum as a Corporate Associate. Tri Delta is excited to financially support the museum and to join in its mission to share the culture and lessons from the American Civil Rights Movement and explore how this significant era continues to shape equality and freedom globally. The museum, located at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, TN –where civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968 — holds a special place in our Tri Delta hearts as many of our members visit the museum each year when we celebrate our partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, also located in Memphis.Visit the Museum
