DignityUSA: Your Voice in 2015
by Lewis Speaks-Tanner, President, DignityUSA

As 2015 winds down and we prepare to celebrate Christmas, it is a time for us to look back at the year. These are a few of the many DignityUSA successes this past year.

By Emmanuel Romero, Co-chair of Dignity/San Francisco, DignityUSA Trans Caucus 

TDoR is a day when we mourn those whose inner fires had been snuffed out by hatred, but if cisgender people like me are to call ourselves allies, we have to remind ourselves that it's not enough to dedicate one day in November to such a conversation. 

US Bishops Conference Betrays Catholic Church
By Marianne Duddy-Burke, DignityUSA Executive Director

While there were certainly some who objected, the strong majority of US Bishops set forth an agenda that has little to do with the Gospel of Jesus, is opposed by the majority of US Catholics, and will squander Church resources, even as parishes, schools, and service programs continue to be shuttered due to decimated diocesan budgets. 

The latest issue of Dateline, which includes these articles as well as other chapter, committee and community news, is available to download here.

Dateline is published in PDF format.  If you don't have a PDF reader, you can get one here.
