AAAFFF mission statement

The Anti Advertising Agency Foundation for freedom runs a granting program designed to lure ad professionals out of the advertising industry and into public service by providing them with grant money to get started. Their mission statement is a well worded demonization of our ill fated consumerist tendencies.

The mission of the Anti-Advertising Agency Foundation for Freedom is to bring the best and brightest former ad pros together once a year; inspire young people to leave the craft; focus the industry and public at large on the profoundly negative social and economic impacts of advertising; inspire problem-solving methods focused on the most important issues facing the real world; and shine a light on the influence that advertising, media, and marketing industries have on dwindling public space, atrophying human relationships, and the destruction of democracy.
