Chapter History

On April 4, 2004, 20 women dared to be different. These Zeta women recognized the need for the presence of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. in the western suburbs of Chicago, and Tau Xi Zeta Chapter was born. This chapter upholds the belief of our founders: sorority elitism and socialism should not overshadow the real mission for progressive organizations, to address societal mores, views, prejudices, poverty, and health concerns of the 21st Century. Since its chartering, Tau Xi Zeta Chapter has been devoted to serving the community. The chapter provides services for Forest Park and the surrounding communities through various programmatic efforts.

"I became a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. in the Spring of 1995 when the vision of World-Class Service permeated the Sorority. At that time, I fell in love with the idea of being a member of this community-conscious, action-oriented organization."
