Pagan groups send press packet to Associated Press
Date: 04 July 1997
For: Immediate Release

Several Pagan organizations cooperated to produce a press kit which was sent to the Associated Press for inclusion in the AP Stylebook. The Stylebook, often called the "journalist's bible," is the standard reference for journalists in determining terms, titles, correct spelling, etc. The press kit effort, led by the Pagan Educational Network, resulted in concise definitions of Paganism and Wicca, an extensive glossary of terms, and a listing of Pagan contacts and resources.

Co-signing the letter to the AP were representatives of the Pagan Educational Network, the Aquarian Tabernacle Church, Ar nDraíocht Fein, The Brideswell Collective, Celestial Teaching Center, Celtic Traditionalist Order of Druids, Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans, The Henge of Keltria, Jane's Tidings, Wiccan Community Fund, WindTree Ranch, and Witches' Anti-Discrimination League.

The organizations involved have decided to send similar kits to other news organizations. Covenant of the Goddess, Witches' League for Public Awareness, and The Third Road will be co-signing these future kits. It is hoped that through consistent, coordinated effort, Pagan faiths will be treated respectfully by the media.
