Our Programs

Omicron Omega continues to play a vital role in the Birmingham Metropolitan Community by supporting numerous non-profit organizations and service initiatives. In 2013, Omicron Omega received the Dr. Martin King, Jr. Non-Violent Service Grant. The chapter partnered with Councilman Jay Roberson and volunteered for his nationally acclaimed 100 days of non-violence initiative along with the funds received from the MLK grant. Omicron Omega participates in the Bloody Sunday commemorative walk each year and along with the annual MLK Unity Breakfast. Other signature programs and organizations the chapter supports and sponsors include:
