“Rep the movement.”
That’s a phrase you’ll hear and see a lot all over our site and social media, but you might not know exactly what it means.
It means that you purchased merch from our online store and that you proudly wear it to spark conversations about the science, facts, and personal accounts that show the harms of porn. It also means that you want to wear something that represents a significant global movement to stop the demand for sexual exploitation.
But when you rep the movement, what exactly are you repping? How are you becoming an active part of this organization when you donate or grab a tee from our online store?
Every time you choose to rep the movement, you are actively contributing to keeping this movement going. When you wear your “Porn Kills Love” or “Stop The Demand” tee, or any other Fighter gear, your supporting this cause in every way—including with your dollars. In essence, when you buy a shirt you’re making a donation to our nonprofit and are helping us educate individuals all over the world.
Here’s one way to think of it—consider your tee shirt as a “gift” in response to you saying YES to spreading the word on the harms of porn.
And since Fighters all over the world are generously spreading the word on the harms of porn by purchasing merch or making a donation, we want to be clear about where your dollars go, and why your support is so massively important to continuing to spread the word that porn is anything but harmless entertainment.
Since 2009, we owe our impact to our Fighters, and we are so grateful for the support we receive from each and every one of you who are repping the movement and sharing our resources with your friends, family members, community and society.
With every “share,” “like,” and comment, you help this movement grow. Every donation and tee shirt purchase helps, it grows a little bit more—and the more we can grow this movement for love through education, the more we can decrease the demand for porn and sexual exploitation.
By choosing to support Fight the New Drug today and rep the movement you are making the following conversation-changing projects possible.
Globalization: getting the word out
There are years of accredited research and personal stories on the harms of porn, but without sharing it and giving it a platform, no one will know about it.
That’s why developing and producing quality, sharable resources is vital to this movement.
Fight the New Drug is an educational platform and awareness campaign that shines a light on pornography’s harms.
We have spent countless hours and consulted with many experts in developing programs that will best reach people around the world to educate them on why porn is harmful to individuals, relationships, and society so they can make an informed decision regarding porn. Our goal is to make these educational resources as accessible as possible.
And donations go directly into making these things possible!
The Translated Sites | Also included in our globalization efforts are our ongoing translation projects, which involve professionally translating select FTND materials and resources into other languages. You can now access select FTND resources on our Spanish-translated site!
Online Educational Resource | As more and more individuals spend more of their time online, we prioritize creating accessible educational resources, including our article database of 1,300+ posts, our Get the Facts articles, Conversation Blueprint “Let’s Talk About Porn”, Digital Downloads , Fast Facts and more.
Social Media Awareness Campaigns | FTND’s ever-growing online presence continues to be one of the most recognized aspects of our organization and one that raises awareness by educating millions of people each year. Behind every post, every tweet, and every blog is an entire team of people dedicated to ensuring we’re delivering the best, most accurate, and relevant information available to the public relating to porn’s harms.
At the end of the day, this wouldn’t be a global movement without all of you, and when you support FTND, you’re tangibly giving further power to the facts that society desperately needs to hear.
Education: Raising awareness and empowering youth
We believe that one of the most significant ways to decrease the demand for pornography, sexual exploitation, and human trafficking is through education.
We share the facts with our target audience, youth and teens, by traveling around the world. Our ambassadors and presenters give informative and quality presentations to various audiences where we share resources to help educate our world on this issue.
Our current and past programs and projects are just the beginning of our efforts to educate the world, and they are made possible by support from people like you all around the world.
Live Presentation Program | Fight the New Drug’s live assembly program is one of the most effective and powerful tools for our cause. Having the opportunity to be face-to-face with tens of thousands of youth, parents, community leaders, and educators all across the country every year is a huge indicator of how many schools and communities are joining the movement and agreeing that pornography is a huge issue for this generation.
The power of providing our engaging multimedia presentation in schools and communities all across the country was and continues to be immediately apparent, resulting in more connections, awareness, and education where it’s needed most.
“Brain, Heart World,” Our Documentary Series | This three-part film series educates viewers on how porn affects individuals through a combination of engaging humor, relatable personal stories, and the clear presentation of facts.
Dr. Don Hilton Jr., Dr. Simone Khün, Dr. Phillip Zimbardo, Dr. William Struthers, and dozens more experts do a fantastic job of explaining the research as well as trafficking survivors and real couples in terms that young people can understand.
