Dignity USA Latest News

July 5, 2023 | by Richard Young | To be sure, the world is complex and multi-layered. People and situations can be complicated. However, our response to these complexities (while not easy) can often be simple: offering concern, listening, caring, accompanying. Today’s reflection reminds us that in a complicated world, real solutions often start with a simple decision to love.
June 30, 2023 | by DignityUSA| DignityUSA is extremely disappointed with today's Supreme Court ruling that means that LGBTQIA+ citizens have less access to the nation's businesses and services than others.
June 28, 2023 | by Ann Marie Szpakowska | Nearly everyone recalls the strict social structures of in-groups and out-groups in a high school cafeteria. There are no signs, but everyone knows where they are welcome to sit. Today’s reflection reminds us that adults can also get stuck in such excluding patterns, and invites us to be rooted in a love that knows no such boundaries.
June 21, 2023. DignityUSA joins many other Catholics around the world in welcoming the Instrumentum Laboris, the recently released Vatican document that will guide the work of the Synod of the Catholic Church in October 2023 and October 2024.  The Synod, which has been enthusiastically convened by Pope Francis himself, is expected to set the tone over the next several years for consideration of some of the most important and controversial issues facing the Catholic Church.
June 21, 2023 | by delfín bautista | The primary definition of accomplice is generally someone who helps another person commit a crime. Today’s reflection reframes the term as God’s commitment to be with us in our endeavors to subvert structures of oppression and exclusion; and challenges us to be God’s accomplice in the sacred act of accompanying one another.
