As usual the APA joined in with Pagan Unity Campaign's IMBOLC campaign. Our Leading priestess, Ginger has stepped down as PUC president, but is now serving as PUC NC state chair and PUC southeast regional director so the APA will continue to be very supportive of PUC political activism co-op campaigns. From: Pagan Unity Campaign Date: January 8, 2009 Subject: Imbolc Campaign 2009 Contact: Fallon Glenn (firstname.lastname@example.org), Adam Labonoski (email@example.com) In accordance with Pagan Unity Campaign's ongoing So Vote It Be campaign and our goal to keep the rights and freedoms of minority religions o n the minds of the government representatives in Washington during this time of great change, the Pagan Unity Campaign will stage the 8th annual Imbolc campaign on February 4, 2009. As has been done in previous years, we ask that all Pagans join voices and email, fax or telephone their elected officials during the first week of February to encourage support of religious tolerance, diversity and freedom. It only takes a few minutes to get involved, and serves as a simple yet powerful reminder of the importance of religious diversity in the country, as well as the presence of Pagan voters and other religious minorities throughout every district in the United States. During this time, we would also ask that you send letters of support for religious diversity and tolerance to state and local media outlets in the hopes that our collective voice extends beyond our elected officials to the hearts and minds of our fellow citizens.
