Are you excited????

The Climate March is 18 days away...can you believe it! PEC-NYC met last night at Lovecraft Bar where we'll be hosting a Pagan Mixer on Friday, 9/19 and it is fabulous! We can't wait to meet and greet you! 

Next meeting of the Pagan Environmental Coalition 
Wednesday, 9/10 at 6:00 p.m. (please note the different start-time) at NY Society for Ethical Culture, 2 West 64th Street in Manhattan (just off Central Park West)--as part of the Climate March Mobilizing group. You must RSVP for this Meeting. After the meeting, we'll head to a coffee shop or bar and discuss our Pagan group plans.
Meet-up Location for March
While the march is officially starting at Columbus Circle, the Interfaith Contingent will gather at 58th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue. Look for Pentacle signs!  Please plan to arrive between 10:00-11:00 a.m. (the earlier the better). We are working on setting up a text-alert system to notify people of where specifically we will be. We strongly encourage everyone to follow us on Twitter @PEC_NYC where we can also make "Look for us HERE!" announcements.
A very special guest at our Saturday, 9/20 ritual!Saturday's pre-march ritual and gathering will feature a very special speaker and guest: Rev. Patrick McCollum. Patrick has been a tireless and extremely successful advocate for Pagan religious rights. He is also a world-renowned Peace Activist. He is in town presenting the World Peace Violin--if you've NOT heard of it, please see the link! We are delighted to have him with us all the way from California!
