Workers and Witches on May Day

On May Day every year – as politicized healers, sick witches, and cultural organizers – we enter into a day with two distinct but connected celebrations: International Workers’ Day and Beltane.

For us, May Day is a day both for lifting up the historic struggle for workers rights as well as a pagan holiday celebrating springtime fertility. We find strength in our legacies of resistance and resilience. As we reflected on Passover about the narrow places from which we come, spring is a time for expanding beyond what we think is possible.
