President's Message

The RED Compass

Greetings, Sorors, and Friends!


Welcome to the official website of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., East St. Louis Alumnae Chapter (DST-ESLAC) where METRO EAST COMMUNITIES ARE SERVED and SISTERHOOD IS CELEBRATED!!!


A chapter of more than 230 members, ESLAC was chartered in 1942 as the Gamma Eta Chapter, subsequently changing its name to East St. Louis Alumnae.  For more than 76 years, ESLAC has been the premier, award-winning chapter of choice in St. Clair and Madison Counties of Illinois.  Recognized on both the national and regional levels, ESLAC remains committed to the foundation built by our 22 visionary Founders and introduced to the city of East St. Louis by our nine industrious charter members.


Our passion to serve others and our commitment to our Metro East communities continue to drive our chapter’s strategic vision and catalyze the deployment of our service activities. Leveraging local needs and implementing the sorority’s 5-Point Programmatic Thrusts ensure that we build thriving communities through our unwavering focus, commitment and impact on:



  • Economic Development

  • Educational Development

  • International Awareness & Involvement

  • Physical & Mental Health

  • Political Awareness & Involvement
