The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. partnered with other community organizations to promote healthy lifestyle changes.  

The event include representatives and sponsors from all aspects of the medical field.  Not only was physical health a focus, mental health and diet were hot topics.  Vendors were on site to take blood pressure, glucose screenings, hearing screenings, dental tips and cancer screenings.

The crowd was treated to extreme hip hop demostrations and sensational cooking tips from Chef Ray Flourney from Fit Kitchen.  Our very own Dr. Tomika Tomalin, City Deputy Mayor was on hand to provide information regarding A Healthy St. Petersburg.

SPMS considered partnering with the Deltas to be an opportunity to showcase our organization and drive economic benefit to the community.  Several shifts of SPMS members manned the table to ensure coverage throughout the Health Fair.

​Pictured Left to Right:  Allene Ahmed-Gammage, Thelma Bruce, School Resource Officer Johnson, Ethel P. Robinson, School Coach and Cynthia Glenn.
Teachers change the lives of million of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.  They are with their students for the majority of their day providing instruction and guidance.

What better way to honor those teachers who are Everyday Heroes than by showing them that they are appreciated for all that they do.  Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-11, 2019.   NCNW members tood time to applaud the teachers at John Hopkins Middle School on Thursday, May 9, 2019 .

These pictures were taken on Thursday at John Hopkins Middle School, formerly 16th Street Elementary and Junior High School, the mighty, mighty Green and Gold Trojans.   NCNW sisters present had an opportunity to experience  dejeva:  "it takes a village" community conversation, discussing   memories,  do you remember, 'aint it funny how time changes', 

The discussions concluded with one imperative thought, "what can we do now to bring about positive change with women in our community and the education of their children?"  It was obvious to them that  one thing didn't change "it does take a village" to raise a child. 

The most exciting part of it all was that the members of our section that were present to salute the teachers were original Trojans, so cool.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER 2019
Encourages a New Commitment to an Old Commandment

Sisters United In Prayer  

Sisters United in Prayer

 Sisters come together to prayer for our community, city, state, country and world.

The Word declares "the prayers of the righteous availeth much", it also ask of us to "pray without ceasing" and to "pray ye one for the other".  

On Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. in the morning at Mt. Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church sisters and brothers of different faiths united to pray for the world in which we dwell.  Prayers were offered up for the elected officals, the schools, the clergy, for peace and for love.

Pastor Clarence Williams the pastor of Mt. Zion AME Church was the featured speaker.  His message was on point and heighten our awareness to loving one another as God has loved us.  Pastor Williams message was taken from John 13: 34-35 A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
We were challenged to pray for one another and to be our brother's keeper / sister's keeper.  

The breakfast was sponsored by the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance, Chaired by our very own NCNW Associate Member Pastor JC Pritchett.  Food was catered by Heavy's Catering.

We can stop Human Trafficking through educating ourselves and others!  Be a Change Agent, Save A Life!

Human Trafficking is Real, What Can We Do?

Human Trafficking is Real, What can we do to eradicate the ghastly effects on the lives of victims?  

One of the first things people can do to eliminate Human Trafficking (HF) is by attending workshops like the one that was held today that so poignantly described the signs and results of human trafficking.  Once the education process is recognized, there is the opportunity to teach others and recognize victims.

The SPMS partnered with the Florida Department of  Junvenile Justice, Florida Children's System of Care and St. Petersburg College to present to the community the ills of human trafficking on society.  The common thread is that each of us have a responsiblity to stop this modern day slavery trade.  No one can do everything but everyone can do something.  This is our challenge.  Rise up and do something!

Florida recently ranked number 3 in the nation for HF.  If you see something say something.  Numbers to call:  1 800 962-2873 FL Abuse or 1 888 373-7888  Human Trafficking Hot Line.  


The workshop was facilliated by our very own SPMS member Pat Audrey McGee who has personally committed to engaging the community with information to make persons more  knowledgeable and aware of the signs of trafficking that could possibly be occuring right before you.  

The workshop consisted of speakers from Homeland Security, a HF survivor, and the Pasco County Sheriff's Office HF Commander.  There also was a Panel discussion hosted by the Salvation Army, Anti-Trafficking Director; panelist included representatives from Redefining Refuge, the St. Petersburg Police Dept HF Division, Florida Dept of Juvenile Justice and Community Outreach and Justice Restoration Center.  Emphasis was focused on no one agency can solve the problem it takes the community and governmental agencies to address this malady.  Victims local and national real life stories shared were heart-breaking and raw.  

Members of  SPMS attended and the Section provided the lunch refreshments.  Both SPC and SPMS received certificates for their partnership.  President Bruce accepted the award on our behalf.  

The next workshop will be in September 2019.
