Hrafnar speaks up in support of #BlackLivesMatter

I am pleased to say that Hrafnar has posted a Statement in Support of Solidarity with Black Pagans and Heathens. Diana and Lorrie took some time to take stock of the circumstances prompting it, and the needs of the local and extended community, and Hrafnar as a group, before composing a statement for us to discuss, editing it as needed by the membership, and finally releasing it with strength to the Hrafnar website and Facebook page.

I think it came out rather well, and frankly much more clearly and strongly than my rambling statements did, and I am proud to uphold Hrafnar’s statement as well.
