Pagan Federation International

The Pagan Federation (PF) was established in 1971 and was set up “originally as primarily a campaigning organisation: one that would actively fight the ignorance and negative attitudes towards Paganism which were at large in the country (UK) then and which obviously still exist in various forms today.” To help campaigning, it was essential to create a network of like-minded people who shared common aims. The second major focus of the PF therefore, was to put Pagans in touch with each other, so that they could share views and meet and talk. A nationwide network, now run by over 40 Regional Coordinators and numerous local organisers, has been put in the place so that members can meet and work together for the benefit of Paganism in general.

These two functions are still paramount today but have evolved as times have changed. It might still not be easy to "come out" as a Pagan now, but it was almost impossible a few decades ago. This change in perception, which the PF has helped cause, has enabled us to make considerable strides toward a more proactive and visible celebration of Paganism.

Pagan Federation International (PFI) was originally set up to serve the overseas members of the PF. In the pre-internet days it was so-called “pen-pal” organisation. About 1996 when email began the organisation changed. Tony Kemp a PF member living in France started coordinating the various countries where the PF members lived. Basically NL, Belgium, France & Germany. By 1999 – PFI was a fact, but still a district of the British organisation. About 2003 beginning to be clear that the whole of the PF should become PFI but this didn’t materialise. Instead the PFI moved towards greater autonomy. This culminated in the establishment of a Foundation in 2006. In July 2006 the Council of the PF approved the “affiliated status” of PFI and from that moment became a separate organisation.

Today the PFI has representatives in all of the continents.

Hallo Pagan Priestess, If you would like to find out more about PFI please visit www.paganfederation.org

We are a separate legal entity to the PF in the UK and are an "affiliated organisation of the Pagan Federation" :-)

Contrary to what Greybeard wrote in August 2014 we have always been available via internet. He is confusing us with PF. 

However *even* PF is now fully automatic and even has Pagan Dawn Online: http://www.paganfed.org/index.php/ipad-android-online

If you want the paper version AND YOU ARE OUTSIDE THE UK  (which includes access to PD Online) please get in touch with me: morgana@paganfederation.org

Bright Blessings, 

Morgana

Merry Meet.  I joined Pagan Federation back when it was Wiccan Federation.  That was in the early 1990s.  I enjoyed reading Pagan Dawn magazine.  However, it soon became very difficult to send in my annual dues and subscription fees.  The Wiccan Federation did not take VISA cards.  In order to send my annual fees I had to obtain British Pounds by ordering through my bank (at a cost) and then mailing cash.  Not a good plan.  in addition, international mail for Pagan Dawn had become problematic, so my membership expired.  We still have a link on our web site at  http://www.oldways.org/links.htm
