Covenant of the Goddess Statement on Current Events

The Covenant of the Goddess (CoG) released a statement about recent violent events and racial inequality:

“We, the members of the Covenant, acknowledge and share the concern that
many in our world and within our Pagan communities have voiced regarding
inequalities in justice. We find that all life is sacred, and as such, all
lives matter.

Today, we the members of the Covenant especially stand together with people
who are not privileged by race and class and say to you: Your life matters.
We stand with you and work alongside you in ending the systems that
disenfranchise you. We encourage and support all efforts by those within
our communities to explore the realities of racial inequality and to work
to find ways to eliminate these injustices. We hope this will create a wave
of introspection and reflection throughout our world, bringing about new
levels of understanding and an appreciation for the unique expression of
the Sacred we each embody. We stand together with communities seeking
nonviolent means of safety and reform, for the unnecessary harm of any
person is an affront to the Sacred and is in contrast to our central
ethical tenet: An it harm none, do what ye will. May the work we do
together today create a peaceful and just tomorrow. ”
