If you’ve spent any time at all on this site, you know that porn and the way it affects people and society is a big deal. So big, in fact, that it might seem overwhelming or impossible to overcome. But look, creating awareness isn’t just about exposing porn for the lies it sells, it’s about doing something about it, about lifting each other up and fighting for real love.

Our nearly 1.4 million Fighters around the world are literally the hands and feet of this movement. Let’s face it, our website, our programs and our t-shirts are only part of the equation. The real power of the movement lies in people like you who are willing to take a stand in their own communities. Fight the New Drug Street Team Fighters are the ones doing the work on the ground at the local level.

Awareness happens on so many levels, but ultimately people are more willing to listen to friends, to listen in comfortable spaces and in familiar language. FTND Street Teams are critical to not only driving the movement, but helping it grow and flourish and shine light in some pretty dark corners. It’s all about raising awareness and changing the conversation.

Step 1: Grab A “Street Team” Kit, Or A Brand New “Rock the Basics” Kit

A kit has everything you need to be a conversation-starting machine. We specifically designed these kits and their contents to be a walking billboard for the movement, and an easy way to get the conversation rolling. Check out all the gear you get in a single kit:

    • 1 Exclusive Porn Kills Love/Fight For Love tee

If you need an idea of how to take your handy-dandy kit to the streets, look no further than this rad Fighter named Landon.

We get stories from around the world of Fighters taking the movement to their community, but we want to shine a spotlight on Landon for a minute.

Landon is awesome, and he exemplifies the real impact that having a cool squad and a few Street Team Kits can have. He grabbed a kit, rallied a few friends, and hit the streets of downtown Boise, Idaho, on a mission to spread the word, have fun, and start some rad conversations on how porn is anything but harmless.

They encountered a lot of opportunity to simply spread the word and get some dialogue going about a subject that’s mainly seen as taboo in society. And you know what? It was a huge success!

Got your friends, got your kit, but you’re not sure how to spread the movement? Read on.

Step 3: Hit The Town & Make The Movement Known

Get creative, get in touch with your own style, and be confident. Want to print out material from our website and hand it out? Go for it. Want to put up posters and stickers on public boards around the city? Awesome. (FTND note: graffiti or vandalism is never a good idea. Respect your city’s laws and use common sense!)

Landon and his crew picked their favorite social graphics on our site and printed out hundreds of them. Those, in addition to their Street Team Kits, made for awesome conversation-starters!

“We taped up posters at bus stops, on light poles, and bike racks, even elevators with the good stuff! It was honestly a great experience. I’m glad I could share with people that porn is anything but harmless,” Landon said.

Check out what his friends did with their kits and and posters, and get inspired:

And who knows, maybe you’ll make even more friends in the process like Landon and his crew! Check this out:

“My friend and I were downtown, repping the movement,” Landon said, “And these girls said they fully supported the movement and wanted to get a picture with us holding the cards! It was great to see so many people at once stand up for real love!”

Step 4: Repeat

It can be easy to have something within reach if your PKL tee or Fighter gear ever strikes up a conversation. For example, when you travel, keep a few handout cards handy. If you run out, grab a new kit and use it to cover a new area! Make a plan to meet up with friends and cover the city. Just one sticker can impact countless people to do a double-take and think twice about porn being cool, so imagine the impact that dozens of them can inspire!

It’s All About Real Connection & Real Conversation

Sometimes it might feel like we’re alone in our fight and that the odds are stacked against us. That’s normal. But it’s also why the Street Team is important. Just knowing there are others out there who feel the same way, who understand the effects of porn on the brain and relationships, goes a long way to maintaining momentum in the fight. Raising awareness of some pretty heavy topics is hard work and more hands on deck make that work just a little bit easier.

And think about this: That connection you feel when you’re spreading the word or hanging posters or handing out cards? That’s real. It’s everything porn isn’t. So that’s pretty cool.

RelatedWhat To Say When Someone Asks About Your ‘Porn Kills Love’ Tee

Ever spend time in the comments of our Facebook posts (or anywhere on the internet, really)? Then you know how easy it is for people to say things they wouldn’t say to another person if they were face to face. This makes having online conversations about pornography difficult.

The conversations the FTND Street Team strike up remove that digital barrier, making it possible to have actual dialogue instead of shouting matches. Face to face is where it’s at. And keeping it friendly, light, and conversational is even more impactful. Practice makes perfect, so keep at it if you feel awkward at first!

When we have face to face conversations with people in our communities, at work, or with complete strangers, we can ditch our preconceived notions of who we think the other is and actually get to know each other. That’s what the movement is all about.

Fight the New Drug Street Teams

It’s Fighters like you who are so important to changing the conversation about porn. By being out there with Street Team Fighter Kit in hand, by plastering up posters and stickers, handing out cards, and sharing facts you can reach people in a way that websites and social media sites can never match.

From college campuses to tourist areas, major landmarks to urban gathering places, these actions all will undoubtedly get people talking about a fact that society needs to hear:

What YOU Can Do

We couldn’t do this without you. Take a stand, right where you are, pick up a FTND “Street Team” Kit or a brand new “Rock the Basics” Kit and speak out against the harmful effects of pornography.
