They came together to found a multicultural sorority; a different type of organization that would not be categorized by ethnicity, creed or culture. Since its inception, it has grown to include over 50 different nationalities and has started 17 other chapters in New Jersey, New York, Florida, Arizona, Texas, and California.[citation needed]
