Only July 11th, DignityUSA teamed up with GLAAD, Shelly’s Voice, PFLAG, the Ariadne Getty Foundation and many more to host the Rally For Equality in Indianapolis. Our caravan of vehicles circled the headquarters of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, demonstrating against a new policy that Archbishop Thompson secretly implemented that will ban transgender and gender non-conforming students from enrolling in more than 60 Indiana schools and severely discriminate against transgender students already enrolled.
July 8, 2020. DignityUSA, the organization of Catholics committed to justice, equality, and full inclusion of LGBTQI Catholics in the church and society, is deeply disappointed in today’s Supreme Court ruling that denies Catholic school teachers legal protection against job bias. In a 7-2 decision, the Justices ruled that because the duties of the two teachers included teaching religion, they were not protected by employment nondiscrimination laws. DignityUSA had submitted an amicus brief in support of the employees in these cases.
