Happy (belated) Noumenia!
We’ve had a busy Noumenia weekend with school wrapping up and Beltaine/Thargelia celebrations and your esteemed (I hope) editor is also easily distracted by shiny objects. I do hope you’ll forgive me for the lateness of our newsletter this month and I will do my best to ensure next month’s gets out on time.
Special thanks to Zoe for the statement against racism, to Lykiea for the use of her painting of Athena Nashville, and to you, as always, for reading.
This is a Special Edition of our newsletter and a response to some… stuff going on in our community. I have done my best as a white person to present anti-racism work in a way that doesn’t create more emotional labor for people of color. To that end, most of the content is directed toward people who have white privilege as a way to encourage this work both internally and externally. Feel free to share with whomever needs to shed a little light on their words and actions around white supremacy and, my dear and beloved friends, also feel free to call me out if I’ve made any mistakes. I’m still learning and I offer these words in the greatest humility and willingness to shed additional light on my own missteps.
Apollon lend you sufficient moxy to dismantle systemic racism.
