Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion web page provides updates on Kappa Alpha Theta's actions regarding our efforts on inclusion and diversity within our organization.
Since 1989, Thetas have stood with Court Appointed Special Advocates/Guardians ad Litem (CASA/GAL) to impact the lives of foster children. As an organization of women committed to spreading the widest influence for good, Kappa Alpha Theta has contributed millions of dollars over the years to National CASA/GAL programs as well as countless volunteer hours. It has been an amazing 30 years, but our work is not done. In fact, it may only be just beginning.
"Eta Sigma/Chapman is honored to give back to CASA over the years. Partnering with an incredibly inspiring and necessary organization makes it easy to pour our love, energy, and passion into supporting foster children. Giving back in ways that are both meaningful and get our whole community involved has meant so much to our chapter!"
All of us have the opportunity to advocate for this cause. Perhaps this means telling your family and friends about CASA/GAL or even recruiting someone you know to serve as a volunteer. We need people to spread the message about the challenges faced by foster children and the important work of CASA/GAL. Educate yourself on the issue so that you can effectively advocate for the cause. To learn more about the impact of CASA/GAL, please visit CASA's Our Impact page.
Sign up for training to become a CASA/GAL volunteer and change a child’s life. If being a CASA/GAL advocate is not possible for you at this time, other volunteer opportunities are available with the organization. Call your local CASA/GAL program and find out how you can support CASA/GAL's work in your community.
In June 2019, Kappa Alpha Theta received National CASA/GAL’s prestigious Children’s Champion Award. This award is given to an individual or organization which has made a significant contribution at the national level to improving the lives of children who have experienced abuse or neglect.Learn More
