I am LaShante A. James, President of Theta Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
It is with great honor that on behalf of the phenomenal members of Theta Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® , I welcome you to our chapter website! Our chapter is comprised of a diverse group of women, who come with varying skills and talents that allow us to lead, uplift, empower and serve our community.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® is an international service organization dedicated to addressing the complex political, social and economic needs of our community founded on the campus of Howard University in 1908. Today over 290,000 members ,world-wide, continue Alpha Kappa Alpha's legacy “to be of service to all mankind”. This year, we celebrate 110 years of sisterhood, scholarship and service to our surrounding communities. Alpha Kappa Alpha was birthed one generation removed from slavery. A time when opportunities for people of color were not easily available. However, the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha innovated and implemented programming that met the needs of the surrounding community.
Similarly, since its chartering in 1968, Theta Tau Omega Chapter fulfills Alpha Kappa Alpha’s mission in the Bridgeport and Greater Fairfield County area through initiatives such as Project ASCEND program for young girls, Community Impact Days, environmental ownership initiatives (Playground 1908), civic engagement activities (voter registrations and town hall meetings), health awareness seminars (Pink Goes Red, The Longest Day, Alzheimer’s Walk), and cultural appreciation events (Bridgeport Girls Rock).
