Macha’s Justice was founded to support polytheists, pagans, magic-users, and people in related spiritual paradigms who are experiencing or have experienced abuse from another person. Our focus is on domestic and intimate partner violence, but it also includes sexual assault, childhood abuse, and familial abuse.  Currently that support manifests as:

  • Facebook page providing resources for empowerment for victims and survivors
  • An online, gender-inclusive, peer support group with carefully moderated membership (if you're interested, please let us know privately)
  • site with in-depth information on interpersonal violence and its intersection with paganism and polytheism
  • A monthly online meeting group to support skill development for service providers, whether on a lay or professional level (no prior experience required)

Our Plans

Near-Future Goals

  • Continue expanding the ways we serve pagan/polytheist survivors
  • Develop, refine, and grow a body of workshops and presentations that provide effective, useful, up-to-date information, such as:
    • Domestic Violence 101
    • Supporting Survivors of Trauma as Priests & Clergy
    • Peer Crisis Support in Ritual (co-created with Strong Roots & Wide Branches)
  • Interviews with consenting survivors and community leaders on the importance of community accountability and ways of building healthier interpersonal networks
  • Resources (such as articles) aimed specifically at pagan/polytheist survivor concerns, e.g. having healthy boundaries with deities, consent for mediums, etc.
  • The ability for regular Q&A sessions around domestic violence with an advocat

Far-in-the-Future Goals

  • Become a 501(c)(3) charitable body capable of offering legally recognized trainings around domestic violence, culturally-informed approaches to supporting pagan/polytheist survivors for non-pagan/polytheist service providers, and related subjects
  • Be able to offer legal advice in regards to domestic violence restraining orders and provide court accompaniment

What the Money Is For

Your pledges will be used in the following ways:
  • Help pay for the minimum costs of maintaining the site (currently at $8/month)
  • Pay for a Zoom account to host online classes ($14.99/month)
  • Support the development of classes and materials aimed at spreading awareness and creating education opportunities
  • Provide compensation for guest speakers/interviewees
  • Provide 'scholarship' availability for said online classes for folks with limited resources
  • Donations to groups advocating for Native rights, health, and wellness, such as the Red Women Rising Project

Why Native groups?
 Native folks, especially women, face the highest rates of violence of any demographic in the US in terms of domestic violence, human trafficking, and murder. As a non-Native animist and polytheist living on unceded territory under a political system that enables the continuance of this high-volume violence, this is one way in which I - and other folks like me - can be involved in supporting Native well-being and sovereignty through Native-led initiatives.
