About The Satanic Temple – Portland
Satanic Portland is a group of independent non-theistic Satanists. Our goal is to promote community activism for social justice, actively provide outreach to marginalized communities within Portland, and participate in public affairs that relate to our shared values. We are open to working with other self-identified Satanists, secularists, and Humanists in the interests of our shared community.
Satanic Portland has been active in Portland since 2015. Between 2016 and 2018, Satanic Portland operated as the Portland chapter of The Satanic Temple. In July 2018 our membership voted for its independence and returned to operating as Satanic Portland. We stand committed to our membership, our ideals, and our local community.
Satanism is a non-theistic religion. It provides us with a body of symbolism, shared values, and traditions. We do not believe in Satan or any other supernatural entities or elements. Rather, we believe in the concepts Satan represents: autonomy, rebellion, and the pursuit of knowledge. For more information and in-depth explanation, please read our FAQ.
