Volkshof Statement on Protests and Injustice

People from across our nation and the world are kneeling, marching, and chanting every day to demand an end to racial injustice and inequality. We stand with them and add our voices to theirs. To all People of Color: Heathens, Pagans, Muslims, Atheists, Christians, those that practice any faith or no faith we want to say, unequivocally, Your Lives Matter. Your Voices Need To Be Heard. Silence is complicity and we will not be silent.

As Heathens remembering the names and the stories of those who have gone before us is one of the most profound ways we can honor them.  We remember George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Terence Crutcher, Atatiana Jefferson, Kayla Moore, Botham Jean, and many others whose stories we have heard. Too many. Too many whose names and stories we do not know. We honor all of you.

We Hear You. As an organization we will always fight against racism, bigotry, and intolerance. We cannot allow these injustices perpetrated by those in power to continue to exist in our world.
