Welcome to Upsilon Omega Chapter
Welcome to the official website of the Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ®.
In 1925, Upsilon Omega Chapter was chartered in Richmond, Virginia, making it the
first Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ® chapter in the Richmond metropolitan
area. The five charter members were: Zenobia Gilpin Henderson, MD, Sydney Mayo
Brown, Leah Virginia Lewis, Ruth Thomas Hargrave, and Gladys Powell. We salute
them for their vision and goals.
Welcome to Upsilon Omega’s website to learn about our illustrious history and other
pertinent information. The programs and activities carry out the mission and goals of
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ® under the leadership of our International
President, Ms. Danette Anthony Reed. Upsilon Omega implements the Program
Initiatives under the theme, “Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and
Sisterhood,” through service programs for women, men, and youth throughout the
Richmond area. Initiatives focus on empowering families, building our economic
wealth, enhancing our environment, advocating for social justice, and uplifting our local
community. Our chapter also has signature programs, including the Debutante Project,
established in 1954, and Future Young Leaders, started in 2011.
As members of the first Black sorority for college-trained African American women, we
work to uplift the community and provide services to enhance the lives of others. Join
and support us in our mission! Our website will feature additional information
concerning events throughout the year. We are grateful to our partners in the Richmond
