Covenant of the Goddess Forms Social Justice Committee

During Grand Council, Covenant of the Goddess’s annual meeting, the membership reached consensus on forming a new Social Justice Committee.  Grand Council was held in Ontario, California over the weekend of August 14th through August 16th, 2015.

The new committee was formed based upon a proposal from longtime Covenant of the Goddess member M. Macha NightMare, and is designed to provide advice and guidance to the National Board on how to address social justice matters.


The Covenant of the Goddess is a nonprofit 501c3 organization that has represented Witches and Wiccans for 40 years.  Beginning in 1975, the Covenant of the Goddess has worked diligently to secure legal protection for Witches and Wiccans, provide minister credentials, offer education through interfaith outreach or collaboration, and foster community within its membership.  For more information go to www.cog.org.

Over the past few days, the media have reported that the deaths of three family members in Pensacola, Florida were the result of a Wiccan or Witchcraft ritual killing and tied to a “blue moon.”

There has never been a time when ritual killings had a place in Wiccan ceremonies.  Wicca is centered on celebration of the lunar cycles and the passing seasons of the year.  Our religion recognizes all life as sacred, and murder has no part in Wiccan practice.
