Since the chartering took place in the middle of the war years, service activities
primarily focused on assistance and involvement with men in the military. The bravery
of these women during a time where they were challenged by Oregon laws that
prevented the Black population from moving freely throughout the city and state,
regulating where to eat, live and play did not stop them continuing the mission of Delta
Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated till this day.
