In This Time of Upheaval, Hold Together #SafetyPin

I wish to create safer space. If you too wish to create safer space, wear a simple, unadorned #SafetyPin on your person. Mine is pinned to my purse so that it is always with me wherever I go.


Safer Space Begins With Us

She founded the Vanic Conspiracy and made ordination vows to the Vanir and her congregation in the summer of 2013. She has contributed to several publications on Heathen and Northern Pagan subjects and regularly presents rituals and workshops at festivals.

This has including medium and servitor training in American Umbanda, clergy training with the Fellowship of the Spiral Path, and jail ministry for local counties.

  1. I can’t offer those things everyday so I guess I’ll try to remember to put on or take off the pin the day of?

      I doubt everyone who is wearing them as a new habit can offer that all the time, but most of us are unlikely to be asked *all the time*, so much as on an urgent basis. If you’re having a day where you feel like, even on an emergency interrupt basis, you couldn’t pull it together enough for that, then yeah, take the pin off for a day, no harm, no foul, I’m sure.

      The point is not to support each other *instead* of ourselves, the point is to share the load.
