"It's been a few years now since witch hunting was in vogue in Massachusetts, but the upcoming Social Transformation Conference to be held at Harvard this April 1-2 could help rekindle the practice. Footage from a November 2009 evangelical conference held at the Hilton Hawaiian Village near Honolulu shows scheduled Social Transformation Conference speaker Dr. Pat Francis up onstage, her voice cracking with intensity, shouting out 'In the name of Jesus we break the power, of witchcraft power, every witchcraft power, we drive you out!'

As documented in this video, four of the speakers slated for the "Social Transformation" conference, to be held at the Harvard Northwest Science building, promote the idea that witchcraft is a pressing contemporary societal concern....these apostles represent a Christian supremacist movement whose leaders encourage believers to cleanse the Earth of infidels and competing belief systems."  [See full article: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/03/28/960974/-Avowed-Witch-Hunters-To-Hold-Harvard-Conference]

Join us in asking Harvard University President, Drew Gilpin Faust, to reconsider any association with such an event and make a public statement condemning these activities.  Use your voice, speak your truth--and spread the word!
