Join us in our call for justice:
The ATX Coven of the Corvid is a small group of dedicated grassroots activists founded on Ostara in 2018. Far too often in history, different has been perceived as dangerous. Even within the activism community, those deemed different are sometimes marginalized, spoken over, and pushed aside. The ATX Coven of the Corvid was founded in the spirit of creating a grassroots accessible space for those of us too Queer, too Witchy, too Goth, or just plain too Weird for the average activism organization with plenty of creative and artistic activism opportunities.
For centuries Witches, Healers, Midwives, Herbalists, and others deemed "different" have been feared, reviled, persecuted, and murdered despite their crucial roles in their communities. As witches, artists, and activists we seek to promote peaceful nonviolent positive social change, healing for humanity, and social justice wherever and whenever possible by engaging people with art, words, and actions.
We seek an end to the violence, suffering, and pain in this world. We work to center marginalized voices and amplify them, and to challenge abuses of privilege wherever they occur. We seek to fight injustice in all its intersectional forms, to help dismantle the systems of privilege which perpetuate these injustices, to reduce human suffering, and ultimately to heal the world. Our actions are non-violent and activism centered. This is a non-religious organization.
“A Witch is born out of the true hungers of her time,” she said. “I was born out of New York. The things that are most wrong here summoned me.” ― Ray Bradbury, from his short story "Drink Entire: Against The Madness Of Crowds" in Long After Midnight
Strength through diversity:
Our country's strength is born through diversity. Our nation is a rainbow of migrants and refugees from diverse backgrounds who bring diverse knowledge, skill sets, cultures, values, art, music, food, and more. This diversity is the United States greatest asset.
However we can never forget that the first settlers who came to this country fleeing religious persecution also began our nation's dark history of colonialism and oppression of indigenous Americans. This pattern of oppression continues to this very day in the form of systemic racism, corporate greed, and exploitation of some of the most vulnerable migrants and refugees arriving in the United States today.
However, the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of hope that we can rise above the blood, the darkness, and the fear mongered by so many in the United States of today. By embracing the true source of our nation's strength, and recognizing the beauty of diversity we can reclaim our nation's shining future from the jaws of greed and begin to end the suffering inflicted by inefficient and inhumane privatization of detention facilities and foster care, ineffective border enforcement policies, and insufficient fair access to due process and the immigration process.
We believe strongly that diversity is strength for both this organization and our country as a whole. It is through diverse experiences, knowledge, and viewpoints that our organization gains higher perspective. As a result, we welcome anyone who aligns themselves with our mission to support human rights and end human suffering is welcome regardless of gender identity, sexuality, race, or religion.
You do NOT have to identify as a witch to join, but most of our members do consider ourselves witches or witchy. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any concerns or questions! Together we are stronger!
