Pagan Activism Conference Online

This is the new parent page for the Pantheon Foundation’s Pagan Activism Conference Online, first run November 2014.

Please find a spread sheet detailing the accounting data for the Pagan Activism Conference On-line, along with our other 2014 projects in the Pantheon Foundation Report PantheaCon 2015. We were pleased to be able to give all of the net proceeds of the event to the speakers and coordinators.

This innovative Conference, in service to the national Pagan community, took place entirely online, allowing for participants from every region of the US to attend. PACO provided valuable, insightful information from experienced and innovative Pagan activists and community voices. Our interactive presentations and discussion panels, regarding infrastructures that serve Pagan organizational and individual activism, featured some of the most experienced and accomplished leaders in their respective areas.

The goal of the Conference was to equip Pagan activists from all over the country with the tools necessary to advance the goals and aims of their own activist efforts, and to build bridges between Pagan activists for mutual support.
