We are a Catholic ministry that supports our LGBTQ+ community and families by promoting equality and inclusion among all people and by sharing our personal stories. We are based in Detroit and have been orphaned by the archdiocese because of our work. Undaunted, we vow to continue advocating for the welcome and full inclusion of LGBTQ+ people into the Church and for workplace equality for the many LGBTQ+ people in our churches, schools, hospitals and other Catholic institutions and agencies.
The time for speaking our truth has never been more urgent. Our emboldened voice has created division with Fortunate Families, Inc. As a group, we are delighted to announce a new name and affiliation. We have changed our name from Fortunate Families Detroit to Families with Dignity, a caucus of DignityUSA.
