Piedmont Pagan Pride Day

Our Purpose

Statement of Purpose:

The purpose of Piedmont Pagan Pride is the advancement of Religious Diversity in the Greater Piedmont Community and the Elimination of Prejudice and Discrimination based on Religious Beliefs.

Mission Statement:

Our Mission is to foster a Spirit of Pride in our Local Pagan Network as well as to Strengthen our Connection to those outside that Network in the Greater Piedmont Area through Education, Activism, Charity and Community.

Defining the Mission Statement:

We try to keep our purpose Balanced through the Inspirations of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth:

• Air: Education

As Paganism begins to enter into the Public eye, it becomes even more important to present an Accurate picture of what we are and what we are not. Whether helping New-comers find their way through the many Different Paths and Traditions we represent, or helping concerned Family members and curious outsiders understand our Beliefs and Practices,  Education is an important part of what Pagan Pride is all about.

• Fire: Activism

All activism begins in the local Community, and Pagan Pride has always been a place where Networks form and change begins. Through Organization and Outreach we can become a platform for Change on important issues close to the Pagan identity.

• Water: Charity

We know that what we do Returns to us. We need to demonstrate this by offering Compassion and Assistance where we can to those in need in the Greater Piedmont Community. When we share our own Abundance, we show that we trust the Gods to share Abundance with us in Return.

• Earth: Community

Pagan Pride is and has always been about Strengthening Community Bonds. We need to continue to Build and Strengthen the Growing Bonds we have Built in the Piedmont Pagan Community, while also Reaching beyond that Community through Interfaith Networking. If We can Stand Together even with our many Differences We can form a Strong Community that can be there to Support those who are a part of it, and become a Platform for Positive Changes in our Cities and Region.

Your contributions to Piedmont Pagan Pride help support our mission and purpose! Even small amounts of love are welcomed and cherished.
