Since Fighters all over the world have generously agreed to partner with us in spreading the word on the harms of porn, we want to be clear about just how far each donation goes and why your support is so massively important in continuing to give a platform to the life-changing research that demonstrates the harmful impacts of porn.

By choosing to support Fight the New Drug today, here are the projects you’ll be helping to make possible.

Globalization: Getting the word out

Without a platform, even the most thorough and credible information from the best sources won’t reach anyone. That’s why developing and producing quality, sharable resources is a vital and necessary part of this movement, and that’s why your part in our mobilization is so essential.

The mobilization of our efforts across the globe is who we are, at the core: an awareness campaign and an educational platform 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. Our goal is to ensure anyone can access this information, so we’ve gathered it and optimized it for sharing and conversation-starting.

The resources our Fighters donate go directly into making these things possible!

Educational Videos & True Story Videos | Because of your support, we’re able to produce educational videos comprised of experts, professionals, advocates, and personal accounts related to the subject of porn’s harm. Anyone can view these short videos by visiting our short video page on our site or our YouTube channel.

Translated resources | Also included in our globalization efforts are our ongoing translation projects, which involve professionally translating select FTND materials and resources into other languages. Right now, you can access select FTND resources in Spanish. You can also watch our three-part documentary, Brain, Heart, Worldwith Spanish subtitles.

Awareness and Research Articles | Mobilization efforts also include our blog, which has over 1,500 articles centering around how porn is connected to sex trafficking, relationship dissatisfaction, and negatively impacting consumers. Additionally, our Get the Facts articles provide easily accessible education.

Social Media Awareness Campaigns | FTND’s ever-growing online presence continues to be one of the most recognized aspects of our organization. Our digital campaigns raise awareness by educating millions of people each year. Behind every post, every tweet, every video, and every blog is an entire team of people dedicated to making sure that we’re delivering the best, most accurate, and relevant information available to the public relating to porn’s harms. Anyone can follow us on Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, FacebookPinterest, and YouTube.

This wouldn’t be a global movement without all of you, and when you support FTND, you’re contributing to educating millions.

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. Through our live presentations, we share the facts with our target audience, youth, and teens.

Our uniquely trained presenters share informative and quality presentations to a variety of different audiences, including students, parents, college students, community members, and more. Since 2011 we’ve reached over one million individuals, and 93% of audience members agree porn can be harmful after attending one of our live events.

Live Presentation ProgramFight the New Drug’s presentation 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 recognizing the need for education on pornography.

Research suggests that school staff and administrators see pornography as a serious issue that affects their school’s cultural climate surrounding sexual violence and that education programs on porn help them feel more confident in addressing the issue and preventing sexual harassment.Maas, M. K., Gal, T., Cary, K. M., & Greer, K. (2022). Popular culture and pornography education to improve the efficacy of secondary school staff response to student sexual harassment., 1-23. doi:10.1080/15546128.2022.2076757Copy 

We take a three-dimensional approach to raising awareness on the harmful effects of pornography in society, so in addition to creating tools and resources for our global supporter base to share, we also love getting face-to-face with people in their schools and cities to provide research-backed information on this important issue. Your donations make this resource possible.
