‘Divine Nine’ Rally Behind VP Hopeful Kamala Harris

The nine Greek organizations of Black sororities and fraternities, known as the “Divine Nine,” are gearing up to support Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris in the Nov. 3 election.

The nine organizations, whose nearly 2 million members are community leaders, civic activists and philanthropists are adept at raising money, are usually apolitical, but have thrown their weight behind the California senator and running mate of Joe Biden.

Their support is largely due to Harris having pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha in 1986 while at Howard University.

“There’s excitement among all the Greeks,” Laura Brown Morse, an Atlanta psychotherapist and member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, told NBC News. “Her addition to the Democratic ticket made people get excited about a VP pick when sometimes that position just seems more like an unnoticed formality. Mobilization efforts started immediately.”
