Heathens Organized Around Radical Defense of Diversity
Heathens fostering diversity, tolerance, and unity, by helping and protecting those in need.
We are an Earth centered spiritual society of like minded pagans and heathens. We operate world wide, with membership and support all over the globe, though we are nested in the Pacific northwest region of the north American continent, a place we have come to know as Cascadia.
We are here to counter the hate and bigotry that is rising around us, while working to build a world where all people can communicate and work together peacefully, regardless of culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, self expression, economic status, abilities, or skin color.
We seek balance and harmony with this planet and all other life therein. We believe in strength through diversity. Mother Earth is home to a great diversity of life, ecosystems, and cultures, and we will protect this diversity, in all its forms, through any means necessary.
We make this pledge to further affirm our goals, to keep us focused and on target, and as a constant reminder of who we are.
Pledge to our mother~ We will work within our communities to elevate, support, and protect people who have been beat down and marginalized by discriminatory and bigoted politics, rhetoric, practices, and violence. We will work to build strong, resilient, connected, cooperative, and integrated communities. We will work closely with the Indigenous people of this land to build bridges and mend cultural wounds. Centering and elevating the voices and needs of the first nations while working towards their vision of decolonization. To become good stewards of the land, to help restore and preserve the natural balance and health of our ecosystems.
We seek peace first in every interaction.
Violence is always a last resort.
