I tried doing this a while back, but it rather fell through. I'm going to try again.

I want to form a group devoted to Artemis for the benefit of supporting women (both cis and trans) who have undergone assault, abuse, and/or gender discrimination.

I'd like the group to do community work, fundraisers, that sort of thing. Fundraisers could include things like publishing hymns and stories about the goddess and donating the proceeds to a related charity of choice. I have publishing connections that can help us out in this arena and give us the capacity to be both in print and e-book.

This will not be about tiara-chasing, priest(ess)ing, feathers in your cap, or what-have-you. It'll be about doing *work*.

If you're interested, leave me a message here or email me at kyrene(at)gmail(dot)com. This group will be open to anyone regardless of where you fall on the pagan/Hellenismos/recon/whatever line, I truly don't care. The cause is what matters. The only thing I insist is that a safe space is supported for anyone who joins up, as they may be survivors themselves.

I will be crossposting this to the usual places so if you see it more than once, bear with me. :)

I can't do community work and fundraiser with you because I live very far, but - since I'm a survivor and hellenic recon - I'd like to be counted in, so I can read/write messages and serve Her some way...

I just participated in a 24 hour Blogathon where my chosen charity was the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, and people from all over took part with their own chosen charity. Believe me when I say that you don't have to be local to organize and perform a fundraiser; the joys of social media makes our world a bit smaller. :)

I can send you an invite to the list. Message me your email?
