Reclaiming Updates Principles of Unity

Culminating six months of discussions and meetings, the all-Reclaiming BIRCH Council consensed on January 30, 2021 to amend the Reclaiming Principles of Unity.

The following paragraph was amended. The strike-through was removed, and the italic-underline phrases added.

“Our tradition honors the wild, and calls for service to the earth and the community. We value peace and practice non-violence, in keeping with the Rede, “Harm none, and do what you will.”We work in diverse ways, including nonviolent direct action, for all forms of justice: environmental, social, political, racial, gender and economic. We are an anti-racist tradition that strives to uplift and center BIPOC voices (Black, Indigenous, People of Color). Our feminism includes a radical analysis of power, seeing all systems of oppression as interrelated, rooted in structures of domination and control.”

The full Reclaiming Principles of Unity can be found here.
