Stop Closing People's Accounts Who Change Their Name For religious Reasons.

This petition had 8,818 supporters


Facebook have been closing people's accounts who are Wiccan or Pagan.

When people become Wiccan they may change their name such as Silver Ravenwolf or Aradia DarkMoon. A name that signifies their magical journey into the Wicca Religion. They will be known by this name in public and professionally Facebook has been closing their accounts saying it is a fake name and fake account, even though these people have had the name for years and built up a close community and friendships with the name.

Facebook are not closing peoples account who covert to Islam and change their name for example someone called John Doe may change their name to Ashraf Islam. This is religious bias and harrasment and needs to be stopped. This has also effected people who are transgender or entertainers who have changed their name
