It is a pleasure to welcome all tent sisters, juveniles, affiliates and visitors to the official website of The United Order of Tents, aka Southern District #1. Our website provides exciting information about events, national programs, and the history of the organization.
We believe that it is our duty as Christians and citizens of the United States of America to do all within our power to assist in attending to the sick, to raise in the heart a fountain of purity and love such as will be a joy to the living and a source of consolation to the bereaved. We believe it is our duty to encourage the youth in seeking their highest potential, to care for the aged, respectfully bury the dead, promote sisterhood and love among ourselves and our posterity, invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God.
Southern District #1 is a unique women’s organization of distinction and pride – An organization with a long history of service to humanity and dedication to finer womanhood. The United Order of Tents is the oldest black women’s organization in the United States.
