Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated

The first sorority for African-American women, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated (AKA), was founded in 1908 on the campus of Howard University.  Over the years, membership has prospered from the original 20 founders to more than 300,000.  Service, sisterhood, and scholarship are the pillars that AKA was built upon.  They continue to be the fundamental structures that inspire its members to give of themselves to help others to thrive.


Diversity is also a strong asset of the organization.  There are a total of more than 980 chapters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated in at least nine countries.  Although members hail from a wide variety of races, ethnicities, cultures, and backgrounds, they proudly and passionately relish in the bond of the AKA Sisterhood.

Tau Beta Omega Chapter

Our success as a chapter can be attributed to countless qualities.  Our members are extremely diverse in backgrounds, talents, and professions.  This is especially useful in the varied cultures and needs of metropolitan Los Angeles.  Our "boutique" size allows us to fortify the bonds of sisterhood because members promote personal connections.  Tau Beta Omega is a dynamic, fun, and formidable group of women who are committed to service and each other.  For more than 31 years, our chapter has worked to leave communities better than how we found them.
