Pagan Religious Rights Event - Washington DC, July 4th!
Pagan Religious Rights Rally and Ritual

When: Jul. 4th. 2007
Where: Washington, Washington DC

Pagan Religious Rights Rally on 4th of July, in Washington DC

Event Details: Special guests:

Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State

Diana Paxson, author and Asatru elder, leading a Pagan ritual to invoke America's Founding Mothers and Fathers.

Selena Fox of Circle Sanctuary

Steve McNallen of the Asatru Folk Assembly

Drum Circle by msimani and Conscious Collaborations.

Join us to celebrate a major victory for Pagan Religious Rights, now that we have secured the Veterans Pentacle! Help us voice a further agenda for Pagan Religious Rights: We want a Pagan chaplain in the U.S. Armed Forces. And we need to keep the focus on the Department of Veterans Affairs to accept Thors Hammer, religious emblem of the Asatruar, and the Druids Awen symbol.

While we have won the quest for the Veterans Pentacle, the Pentacle is a single victory in the longer campaign for universal religious freedom. We need to hold a clear intent: we want to further the free expression of all religions, Pagan and otherwise. And we need to send that message now, while America still remembers that a department of the federal government systematically denied Wiccan soldiers their full rights.

Diana Paxson will lead a ritual to invoke the Founders of our nation to work with us to protect the liberties they established and the land they loved. After the ritual, there will be a Spirit Drum Circle facilitated by Mz. imani. Through the voice of the drums, our ritual intent will travel into the hearts of the world, invoking harmony, justice and religious freedom for all.

Event Location: Lafayette Square Park in Washington
Event TIME Details: Noon to 5 p.m.

Directions: Meet us at Lafayette Square Park in Washington, DC. Look for our sign.
