Anaheim, CA – On July 2, 2018 the Covenant of the Goddess, a 40-year-old national organization representing Witches and Wiccans, issued a formal statement regarding the recent and continued separation of families at the U.S./Mexico border. The statement reads:
We, the members of the Covenant of the Goddess, condemn the separation of children from their families as has been occurring at the U.S./Mexico border as well as elsewhere around the world. The Covenant of the Goddess believes that the forced removal of immigrant children from caring parents exposes the child to grievous psychological, emotional and even physical harm, and it is immoral. We demand the reunification of families to happen immediately and the immediate cessation of any policy that dictates the separation of families.
