We are the Southern Illinois Pagan Alliance (SIPA.)  

Since its founding in 1998, Southern Illinois Pagan Alliance (SIPA) has grown from a small group to a community of Pagans, Wiccans, and followers of other Earth-based spiritual traditions.  Over the years, we have expanded in size as well as made connections to other organizations. We have built on our goal of educating our non-Pagan neighbors by becoming a visible and positive presence in the region. We hope to continue to serve the Pagan community of Southern Illinois and neighboring regions for years to come.
