Project Witches Protection has very little money, relies heavily on volunteers and promotes a message that often falls on deaf ears.

But the anti-defamation organization trucks on, stuffing hundreds of envelopes at Laurie Cabot’s witch shop every month to send to authorities across the state. Inside the envelopes is literature designed to inform people about the civil rights of witches.

Formerly known as the Witches League for Public Awareness, the group is on a mission to educate every mayor, town clerk and police chief in Massachusetts.

“You’d be surprised, people don’t realize it’s a real religion,” said Cabot, who is president of Project Witches Protection. “We need to let the authorities know so they can step up to the plate and protect witches.”
