The Pagan Prisoner Advocate’s Guide exposes a national travesty — a pogrom of persecution against Pagans behind bars — and reveals a Wiccan clergywoman’s secrets to helping this vulnerable segment of the Craft community.
Co-author of The Goodly Spellbook: Olde Spells For Modern Problems, Lady Passion (Dixie Deerman) has taught Witchcraft to incarcerated and institutionalized people nationwide for decades, and has enabled them to secure their religious rights.
Evoking empathy for needy inmates and others, the High Priestess of Coven Oldenwilde in Asheville, North Carolina asserts, “There but for the grace of the Gods go we.” And she’s right: America imprisons more of its citizens than any other developed country.
Lady Passion explains how some laws penalize magical practices and make Pagans prone to arrest or committal. And she gives a blow-by-blow account of the petty and perverse ways that prison and institutional staff employ to violate the religious rights of Pagan and Wiccan inmates and patients.
Lady Passion’s experiences besting bigots with her wicked mix of cunning, courage, compassion, and resolve provide a model for volunteers to emulate.
Ultimately, Lady Passion encourages readers to step up and volunteer to advocate for convicts and the committed, and provides surefire insider tips to ensure they succeed.

Makes good points about religious persecution behind bars in the U.S.
Glad someone is taking on this role as well as spreading information about it.
