DIGNITY TRI-CITIES was a chapter of Dignity, a national organization of gay and lesbian Catholics, though all were welcome. Dignity Tri-Cities sponsored meetings and activities in Bay City, Saginaw and Mid-land: support and informative sessions, speakers, dances, and social activities. They assisted in the founding of local LGBT and ally groups and in organizing other activities in the community. Michael Brancheau, the first president at Dignity Tri-Cities, accepts the award.
