The mission of In-Reach is to provide Heathen religious information and materials and, when possible, visitation to inmates at correctional facilities, transition houses, and halfway houses throughout the United States. This is a Troth-driven effort to interact with facility administrators and inmates directly, and, when possible and feasible, to lead Heathen discussion groups or ceremonies.

Population(s) Served
Incarcerated people

Stewards are volunteers who work to build community for heathens everywhere in conjunction with the Troth. They start by providing a presence and giving information to individuals who are interested in The Troth or in heathenry generally. They may also help heathens find each other, start kindreds if they wish, and create opportunities for local kindreds to get together with each other or organize regional meetings. The work of the Steward in this web is bringing together threads of individuals and kindreds. They are familiar with the Troth members and kindreds in his or her area, and know the other heathen organizations that are willing to work with the Troth. They usually have strong ties to the broader heathen community local to the Steward's territory.

Stewards can be Regional, and work within a state, part of a state, or in several states. A steward can also work in a special interest area, such as with the military or with incarcerated heathens.

Heathens against Hate opposes the use of heathen lore, symbols, gods or culture for the promotion, propagation, justification or glorification of hatred, persecution, or intolerance of others based on race, gender identity, country of origin, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation.

Heathens Against Hate was formed to help combat the non-inclusive ideology that has been found within the Heathen community. Heathens Against Hate is working on their incorporation and The Troth will hold donated funds on their behalf. Their website is at https://www.heathensagainst.org and the link to their sovereignty statement is at https://www.heathensagainst.org/post/hah-sovereignty-statement.

The Troth's International Relations and Exchange Program (IREP) was formed to:

* facilitate and participate in international discussion, collaboration, and frith-building among inclusive Heathen groups around the world

* support Troth members in and outside the US

* engage in interfaith dialogue and promote interreligious harmony

* promote and support inclusive Heathenry internationally

To accomplish these efforts we have:

Co-hosted Frith Forge an international frith building conference among inclusive Asatru/Heathen organizations and individuals. Held in Werder/Petzow GERMANY. October 2017. Frith Forge 2017 was directly followed by a Heathen Sacred Sites Tour of Germany on October 8-14, 2017. We are hopeful to host additional Frith Forges every three or four years or so.

The next Frith Forge was going to be held on August 16-19, 2020 at the beloved Raven's Knoll, a Heathen owned campground in Eganville, Ontario CANADA. However due to COVID-19 we are moving the conference to a 1 day event on Zoom on August 15, 2020. More information can be found at https://events.thetroth.org/frith-forge/2020

We also co-sponsor a booth at The Parliament of World’s Religions in collaboration with Alliance for Inclusive Heathenry. We had strong representation at the 2018 Parliament in Toronto Canada.

If interested in volunteering for IREP or participating in this program in another way, please contact Amanda Leigh-Hawkins, Program Coordinator, at [email protected]
