Community Resources for Intersectional Witches

A Living Document

Finding community in the non-digital world is difficult enough without the added layers of trust needed to feel welcome when you’re a witch at several social intersections. The witch trend, which is now incredibly popular and visible, tends to feature one kind of witch: a cisgender white woman, temporarily able-bodied, thin, and traditionally beautiful by Western standards.

This leaves a shitload of us out of the picture, even if we meet one or two of those criteria. We’re tired of never seeing or hearing in popular media from fat witches, black witches, disabled witches, poor witches, neurodivergent witches, and trans witches. We’re tired of seeing white witches downplay and benefit from cultural appropriation, or the popularized witch lifestyle ignoring witches at different socioeconomic levels to capitalize on this form of spirituality.

This page is an effort, albeit a small one, that we are crafting to address this. The contents will shift and evolve as we research, and we invite you to participate by sharing any resources that you love and trust (or questions you may have about what’s shared here) via our email at witchesrisepub at gmail dot com. We will be adding blogs, supply shops, articles about strengthening our work as accomplices against oppression, and more. (At the moment, we are not including jewelry but that may change in the future.) Keep checking back for more!
