Just one year ago today, our wider Pagan community got its first glimpse at the Pagan Community Statement on the Environment, crafted by a large group of diverse Pagans, including Pagan leaders, authors, artists, and bloggers from around the world . It was officially released on Earth Day (April 22), 2015, and the signatures started pouring in – first 100, then 1,000 – then more, with Pagans from many traditions and places on our Earth! It has now passed 7,000 signatures, extending its reach and impact. Where will it be on its one year anniversary, just a few short weeks away? Will we reach 10,000 Pagans, united for our Earth and our future? You can sign it here.
For me, signing this statement was a spiritual act, a small but real step towards healing our culture. With the record setting temperatures of 2015 making headlines, we need to keep speaking out about the threats we, and our grandchildren, face. Signing this statement can be part of your spiritual practices, a real gift to our entire web of life.
Here’s what you can do:
- If you belong to a Pagan organization that has a mailing list, email list or newsletter, ask someone in the organization to promote the statement to its members.
- Do you blog? Reblog the the statement, along with clear links and suggestions to sign the statement.
- Share the statement with 5 Pagan friends in a personal email or personal Facebook message. We need signatures, not Facebook likes (so a post on your wall is good, but not enough). So ask your friends to go to ecopagan.com to sign the statement.
- If you haven’t already done so, go to ecopagan.com to sign the statement.
A clear statement like this, with many thousands of people behind it, publicized to the wider world, shows that pagans are taking action, instead of just talking with each other about doing something.
