I'm Not White- Can I do X tradition?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past 10 years, Paganicon has excelled in bringing together people and difficult topics. This workshop idea came from being directly told a few times in 2019 by different individuals that their quest was hampered or detoured due to issues of race, or more bluntly, being told that they could not join X group because they were not white or they were not of X ethnicity. So how does race and ethnicity affect what someone can or cannot practice? If you are looking and race or ethnicity has been an issue for you, how has this barrier affected your chosen path? For any who have heard, "you can't do X tradition because you are not Y", this workshop/discussion is for you.
Let's get raw and real about what you can do, if you are in this situation. Furthermore, if you are a group that wonders why some pagans of color may be resistant to joining or to showing up, this is for you as well. Let's make this the first step in addressing the journey our community has taken and will continue to take over the next 10 years in the areas of diversity and inclusivity as we define Multicultural Paganism for the modern Pagan era.
