AFAN’s global mission is to enhance, protect, and validate the important role astrologers and astrology have in today’s society. Media accountability and public information are top-priority ongoing projects for AFAN. Through Media Watch AFAN monitors the press and responds, correcting inaccurate or biased print and electronic media accounts. Members are the lifeblood of AFAN, they provide the ideas, energy and the reason for AFAN’s existence.
AFAN is a lively network, designed to provide helpful resources and material, including legal information, and the AFAN Legal Information Kit. AFAN’s Legal Information Committee has been extraordinarily successful in changing laws restrictive to the practice of astrology. AFAN works with other organizations and individuals to provide funding for various astrological projects, grants and scholarships. Additionally, AFAN surveys existing sources in astrological education, sponsors International Astrology Day and co-produces with other astrological organizations the United Astrology Conference (UAC).
