Pagan Unity Campaign Launches 3rd Annual "I Am Project"
Nationwide Pagans are encouraged to make their voice heard on June 21, 2003.
On June 21, 2003, the PUC will launch the third annual "I Am Project," alerting government officials of the staggering number
of Pagan supporters in their districts. By unifying the effort on summer solstice, the elected officials will hopefully be bombarded with postcards and letters calling their attention to the size of the Pagan community.
The PUC is not asking for hours of volunteer work, hundreds of
dollars or cross-country travel. Even the busiest individual can help stand up and say, "Pagans matter!" All PUC is requesting is for Pagans to take a simple hometown postcard and mail it to their elected officials in Congress and to the President stating, "I am a Pagan _________." Pagans are requested to fill in the blank with one or several words to describe yourself; teacher, business owner,
Mother, Police officer, student, baker, Soldier, Grandmother, etc.
The PUC wants to show the government that Pagans represent a large voting voice AND that they range from young to older, professionals to students to retirees. Their description is the key! By using a hometown postcard, Pagans deliver the message that they live in the elected official's district. These personal touches are key to political impact.
The PUC also encourages Pagans to throw "I Am 3" parties for their friends, bring postcards to their group meetings, and leave stacks at gatherings and celebrations to spread the word and encourage participation. PUC President Ginger Strivelli states, "It doesn't get any easier than this, y'all!"
