MISSION OF THE PAGAN CLUSTER– The Pagan Cluster is a loose gathering of individuals and affinity groups who bring an earth-based spirituality to global justice and peace actions. With courage and friendship, our community strives to create a better world. We practice the art of changing global consciousness by incorporating music, drums, ritual, myth, humor and magic into our actions.

Events involve a large diversity of groups with differing strategies, but our cluster always remains committed to nonviolent tactics. Members decide what each action will include by sharing spiritual insights and participating in consensus-based direct democracy.

Many of us have roots in the Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft

Pagan Cluster has consensed to Reclaiming’s Principles of Unity

As part of the Peoples Climate March we agree to observe the Jemez Principles of Environmental Justice. 

THE PAGAN ENVIRONMENTAL COALITION OF NYC–

The Pagan Environmental Coalition of NYC of aims to organize, educate, and coordinate action in the Pagan community in New York State and beyond to address environmental issues. This is a faith-based action group composed of a wide cross-section of Traditions, groups, and Solitary Practitioners.

Current actions include education about the dangers of hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”), presence at anti-fracking demonstrations, and support for green infrastructure such as wind power.

PEC-NYC has focused on creating space for the Pagan Community within the Interfaith contingent of the People’s Climate March. We look forward to meeting and greeting our friends from close by and far away!
