We say it all the time, and we’ll say it again: we really wouldn’t be anywhere without our global community of millions of Fighters.
As an awareness-raising and educational organization, we create the resources and aggregate the existing research into one easy-to-find place, but it’s up to our diverse and loyal supporters to take the facts to their countries and communities. This really is a grassroots movement for change on the individual level, so every little bit of visibility given to the facts makes a big difference. Are you in?
Here are just a few tips and resources so you can join this movement wherever you are. Here are 9 ways you can be a part of this important cause:
1. Watch/host a screening of our docuseries, Brain, Heart, World
You may have recently heard that we dropped an awesome three-part documentary series, but did you know it’s free to watch audiences?
“The Brain” dives into the scientific research that illustrates the physiological and neurological harms pornography has on individuals. “The Heart” explores pornography’s impacts on romantic relationships, and on platonic relationships such as those with friends, family, and everyday interpersonal connections. “The World” highlights porn’s impact on society in a variety of ways, including porn’s inextricable connection to the global issue of sex trafficking.
This conversation-changing project is a gentle introduction to this global issue—you might laugh, you might cry, but you’ll definitely think. Watching this series for free or hosting a private screening is one of the best ways you can get a dialogue started in your community.
