What is Solidarity Sunday?

Solidarity Sunday, observed every year on the Sunday before October 11 (which is Coming Out Day), is a faith-based anti-violence initiative. Because we understood that, contrary to popular belief, most Catholics are appalled by anti-gay attacks, DignityUSA initiated Solidarity Sunday in 1995 as a way of making our opposition to anti-gay violence visible. It is a very simple program. People are asked to do three things:

  1. Wear your Solidarity Sunday ribbon at all times.
  2. Pray for an end to anti-gay violence
  3. Educate your children, your faith community, your colleagues, your friends about the need to stop violence against all people, especially gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
  4. Take the Solidarity pledge.
