We’ll welcome Shelly Fitzgerald, who was the Co-Director of Guidance and was employed for 15 years at an Indianapolis Catholic school. In 2018, she was instructed to attend a meeting with school administrators, where her marriage to her wife, Victoria, was the topic of conversation. The Archdiocese of Indianapolis stated her marriage was a violation of her contract and she was given these options: dissolve her marriage, resign, or keep quiet and work the rest of the school year without receiving a renewal of her contract. Rather than offer her resignation, Shelly chose to fight. This decision was not to fight just for herself, but for all people who face discrimination. This fight has now gained national attention. She has become a voice for the disenfranchised and for people treated unjustly and discriminated against simply because of their sexual orientation or gender.
