By Marty Grochala, 2013 Convention Chair
Every two years DignityUSA members gather to celebrate our heritage, our past, and our future. This year we come together as a family in Minneapolis; and we invite you to be part of the celebration by becoming a convention sponsor.
We are seeking your support of our mission and ask you to consider donating towards our biennial national Convention, where over 300 Dignity members and allies will gather July 4-7, 2013 at the Minneapolis Hilton.
We have an exciting program lined up during which members will hear theologians, social justice advocates, and religious and lay people, engage us to create anew and model an inclusive and just society and church, and give attendees the tools needed to do this work when they return to their communities.
As we gather in Minneapolis to explore our theme, “Let Justice Flow Like a River,” we will look into the depth of our Catholic social justice traditions and closely explore current best practices as they relate to successful LGBT, gender, racial, and economic justice work.
Consider becoming a sponsor of one of the Plenary sessions, workshops, speakers, or programs during our Cconvention. Your gift can also provide flowers for the altar or chapel, underwrite the cost of our liturgical music, or provide scholarships.
You can provide support with a direct sponsorship gift. All sponsorship opportunities are described under the Sponsor/Donate menu on the Convention 2013 website. Take a look today to donate or sponsor.
Program Ads and Greetings
Another way to support the Convention is to buy an advertisement or greeting to be printed in the convention program book. A long-standing Dignity tradition, many members choose to salute the convention attendees with greetings from themselves or their chapters. From full-page ads to a 25-word greeting, this is a great way to celebrate the Convention and Dignity.
Your support of the Convention helps to keep our registration costs low and also makes it possible for DignityUSA to bring you an exceptional convention experience. Thank you for your consideration and continued support of DignityUSA.
