Statement from the MEC board:

MEC was founded with the goal of making a safe and inclusive community for all as laid out in our mission statement right from the very beginning:

The Magical Educational Council was established for the following purpose: to create community by promoting the sharing of knowledge,experience, and fellowship among people who follow mystical and esoteric traditions.

In order to promote community, we do not include those paths or traditions whose doctrines advocate bigotry and / or violence against others on any basis including but not limited to race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or religion

It is in the core of what MEC is and what we want to provide the community to stand against racism not only at our event, but in our community and in the world. To this end we had planned on using our Spring Town Hall to start an initiative of creating a community wide Diversity Board, however our plans were cut short by the pandemic that has threatened the health and taken the lives of so many.

This has not stopped our plans, but has delayed them. We are committed to continue to have ConVocation be a place for everyone in our community to feel safe, welcome, included and represented. When we can confirm that it will be lawful and safe to host a Town Hall (hopefully in October) we will be making announcements to invite those who want to help us improve ConVocation and all other events, groups and organizations be as representatively diverse as our community truly is.

In the meantime, know that we understand that we CANNOT understand what people of color have experienced in their lives, but we support you, we are listening to you and we are here for you.

Justice for only some is no justice at all. Black Lives Matter
