Fired by a vision of a church that transcends cultural prejudices, the Equally Blessed coalition seeks to educate and inspire Catholics to take action on behalf of LGBT people, their families and friends.
The Equally Blessed Coalition is horrified and saddened at the tragic and unnecessary deaths of 50 people at the Pulse Orlando night club on June 12, and we pray for swift recoveries for the additional 53 people who were injured.
DignityUSA, a member of the Equally Blessed coalition, has expressed grave concern after receiving news that the Knights of Columbus would underwrite the Catholic news service "Crux," effective April 1, 2016.
Noting that the Knights of Columbus have contributed over $6.25 million towards campaigns and measures that oppose same-sex marriage, Executive Director of DignityUSA Marianne Duddy-Burke asked:
The Equally Blessed Coalition stands with the Arcus Foundation, along with dozens of LGBTQ Latinx groups and other allies, to reaffirm our resolve to end violence against marginalized communities following the Orlando tragedy.
