REPORT FROM
THE PAGAN CONCLAVE 

The Pagan Alliance and Druid House of Danu Chaplaincy Program put out the call for an historic Conclave of Pagan traditions that was held at the Humanist Hall in Oakland on Sunday, May 5, 2013. This emergency meeting was called to address some proposed regulations by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).  The proposed regulations presented a Matrix listing personal religious items that inmates could possess that would have applied to all California prisons.  Up until this point, each facility had their own list of religious items would be allowed.  When inmates were transferred, they often had to endure seeing their personal religious items desecrated and destroyed, usually in front of them.  The Matrix was proposed with good intention to create a statewide standard for permitted items in the hope of reducing such incidents. So what was the problem? Check out this attachement for a full report.
