At a minimum, the Pagan Pride celebration in your area will involve three main activities:
1. Public Ceremony:
A public gathering where the community can network with each other and celebrate an Autumn Equinox ritual.
2. Food drive: (Our Key Goal)
A food drive or other charitable activity, to share our abundant harvest with others in need.
3. Press releases:
Press releases and media coverage of our events in order to present the truth about Paganism to our communities, refute common misconceptions, and draw political attention to Paganism in order to try to prevent legislative discrimination against Pagans.
