✪ Pagan Accountability by Rev. Bill Duvendack

Accountability within Paganism is a tricky thing. Pagans are a minority group in the USA and because of this there is a close knit sense of community among them. Because of this, people generally know a majority of people more experienced than they, or less experienced as the case may be, and this is something that social media is helping. However, the tradeoff is that no one wants to see a community member when they are at their worst, right? Furthermore, taking active steps against one that does something criminal or unethical can be a challenge because of the backlash from said community. So, how does one go about practicing accountability, and quite frankly, what does accountability even mean in a small community? In this presentation we will take a look at what accountability is, what it isn’t, and how it can be put into practice not only on a local level, but also a national one.
