Day & Time: Sunday, May 29 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm
Location: Wicked Grounds at 289 8th Street in San Francisco


In March, 115 members of the state legislature of North Carolina passed a law policing which restrooms transmen and transwomen can use. Despite constant overtures, they refuse to amend this mistake.

So Satanic San Francisco is doing what any reasonable, compassionate, civic-minded group would do in a situation like this: We’re putting a curse on them all. And we need your help!

In the first week of June, every politician in North Carolina who voted for HB2 will receive the HEX OF OBSOLESCENCE in the mail: twitter.com/3liza/status/726182394277982208 It isn't a literal hex, of course, more just a statement of protest. But it gets the point across, and if it creeps the hell out of some bigots then so much the better.

Want to help? Come down to the Wicked Grounds coffee house, 289 8th Street in San Francisco, on Sunday, May 29, from 5 PM to 6 PM. If you help us out stuff a few envelopes, you’ll get to do your part to preserve the equality and dignity of all peoples, and you’ll get to meet and hang out with some cool folks! (Us, and also all of you. It’s a good crowd.)

FAQ (preemptive; nobody has asked any questions yet, much less frequently….)

Q: Who are you?
A: Satanic San Francisco is a group of like-minded, atheistic activists committed to the tenets of the Satanic Temple. www.satanicsf.com/

Q: Do I have to be a Satanist?A: Nope. You just have to care about the issue and be able to do the work without fatal paper cuts. (We have confidence in you.)

Q: Is this magic?
A: It’s more a gesture of protest. The group is atheistic. That said, if YOU believe in magic, then great, bonus for you.

Q: Where did the illustration come from?
A: From Eliza Gauger, an artist who generously granted anyone the right to reproduce the image as an act of protest. It’s part of her “Problem Glyphs” series (problemglyphs.org). We think it’s pretty rad.

Q: Will there be cookies?
A: Dude. Of course. Seriously, though, please purchase something from Wicked Grounds to help support having a public space where we can do things like this in comfort and without fear. The milkshakes are to die for.
