Last month, we formalized our longstanding partnership with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated (DST), the nation’s largest African American women’s organization, during a ceremony held at the DST headquarters in Washington, D.C. We couldn’t be more excited!
This partnership comes after three years of collaboration on health care-related initiatives ranging from on-the-ground events on college campuses to twitter town halls co-hosted by our Get Covered America campaign. In the words of DST’s National President Dr. Paulette C. Walker, “We’ve been dating for a long time, and today we finally got married.”

The agreement gives DST special access to our enrollment and outreach resources, including a co-branded, embeddable version of the Get Covered Connector, and encourages both leadership and membership to attend training webinars to better equip them to help their communities get covered and stay covered.

Since 2013, DST has worked with us both nationally and at the local level to help the uninsured gain the peace of mind that comes with having health insurance. We’ve collaborated on eight national enrollment efforts, and over 15 collegiate and alumnae chapters have teamed up with local Enroll America staff to help with volunteer engagement, phone banks, enrollment events, and social media outreach (to name just a few).
Our President Anne Filipic closed the ceremony by thanking DST for being an incredible leader both at the national and local level. They pave the way for health coverage enrollment work to move forward, and to ensure that all Americans gain access. She closed by saying, “Crimson and Cream has been at the forefront, and is a central piece of the movement toward a healthier America.”
We look forward to working with Delta Sigma Theta — and all of our partners in the enrollment community — in the upcoming open enrollment period. 22 days until November 1! Are you ready?
