PAGAN PRIDE PROJECT TO SPONSOR...
TEMPEST SMITH TOLERANCE PLEDGE


Tempest - Febuary 17, 2001 The Pagan Pride Project is honored to present the Tempest Smith Tolerance Pledge as part of continued efforts to foster pride in Pagan identity through education, activism, charity, and community.

The Quilt made by the Quilter's Coven, presented to Tempest's Mother, Danessa on June 24th 2001 The Pledge is a simple oath that anyone, Pagan or Non-Pagan, can sign as a memorial to Tempest Smith, the 12-year-old girl who killed herself on February 20, 2001, in Lincoln Park, Michigan, caused by the taunting of other students who mocked her because she professed the Wiccan faith.

The Pledge is available to any group, Pagan or non-Pagan, and will be made available for download in multiple formats from the Pagan Pride Project website. This Pledge, authored by Pagan Pride Executive Director Cecylyna Dewr, is presented with the full permission of Tempestís mother, Denessa Smith, who since Tempestís suicide has made it her pledge to tell Tempestís story so that no child or parent ever goes through this again.

Tempest's Mother, Danessa The Pagan Pride Project is honored to be a part of that. The full text of the Pledge will be available as an online signatory project, similar to the Faith-Based Initiative project sponsored by the Alternative Religions Educational Network. Pagan Pride thanks AREN for providing inspiration to make this goal a reality within the next few days.

The pledge will also be available in Word, PDF, PageMaker, and HTML formats to download, print, and distribute, and the Pagan Pride Project encourages signatories to send copies to PPP at the address below. Anyone who converts the pledge to another format and wishes to make copies available to PPP is encouraged to do so, and will be credited on the Pagan Pride website.
