During a courtesy call on the Minister for Grand Bahama, the Hon. Ginger Moxey on Monday, the local chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Grand Bahama Alumnae Chapter, pledged to support the Minister and Ministry in several initiatives. President Arlete Thompson thanked Minister Moxey for inviting them in to hear the plans for the Ministry of Grand Bahama and together discuss ways to partner in the projects. There are several areas in which they would like to partner, she continued, particularly with the Orange Campaign which focuses on the need for a safe space for battered women on the island.

Their organization, she said, is attempting to be a voice for those women who need to reach out and just have someone to talk to. Mrs. Moxey, in response, said the Ministry is “100 percent on board” as it is something she is passionate about. She added that a system will be developed shortly, to facilitate this need. The members of the sorority also shared information on some of their other projects.
