ABOUT

Our Mission

Fight the New Drug exists to provide individuals the opportunity to make an informed decision regarding pornography by raising awareness on its harmful effects using science, facts, and personal accounts.

Our Story

Pornography used to be a matter of opinion. Some felt it was natural, normal, and expected for teens and young adults to consume it. Others rejected it because of personal or religious morals. Few seemed to have definitive evidence on why it was harmful or beneficial.

When we first came across the science of how pornography affects the brain we were stunned! After further study we found that relationships were being destroyed and that pornography was having a profound effect on sexual violence in our society. We couldn’t believe that this was happening and nobody was talking about it. We quickly became passionate about educating, empowering, and equipping other young people with this knowledge.

We are the first generation in the history of the world to face the issue of pornography to this intensity and scale. We’re also the first generation with a fact-based understanding of the harm pornography can do, and with that knowledge we feel the responsibility to share it with others.

By individually choosing to reject pornography we can shape our own lives. By spreading this message to others we hold the power to shape history. From that simple idea an entire movement was born.

The Team

CLAY OLSEN

CO-FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

With a passion for film and an entrepreneurial heart, Clay is the vision behind Fight the New Drug. He can be found touring the country, speaking in assemblies, filming and raving about his favorite restaurant of the day. After living in Argentina, founding four businesses, and establishing a solid career path, Clay forsook all logic, quit his day job and began dedicating all of his time towards Fight the New Drug. His idealistic vision and years of hard work have made Fight the New Drug what it is today.

KYSON DANA

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Kyson has two careers goals in life: Have fun and change the world through art and design. By working at FTND he is proudly accomplishing both. His artistic/design skills are mad real. With a passion for adventure and feet that yearn to travel, Kyson has raft-guided in Alaska, started a skateboarding business, lived in Russia, and started a socially focused business focusing on funding education in India.

KYLE ROBERTS

OFFICE MANAGER

Kyle claims that she is a mental health counselor but we really know that she is a comedian in disguise. With her hilarious life experiences, strikingly odd resemblance to Tina Fey, and Texas culture, Kyle always keeps things moving and funny. She has a Master’s Degree in community counseling and a big compassionate heart for helping those in need especially after volunteering service in Bolivia.

TODD BLAQUIERE

DIRECTOR OF MARKETING

Even though he’s got mad baller skills, is obsessed with sports and could dunk when he was only 17, Todd chose NOT to join the NBA and instead works here at FTND. With a background in acting, film and marketing, Todd is like an endless pit of rad ideas. Despite being in a punk band, being featured in countless productions, living in Spain, producing a TV show, and getting his MBA, Todd claims that his greatest accomplishment is marrying his beautiful wife with whom he has three kids.

CLAIRE EASLEY

WRITER/EDITOR

If there’s one thing Claire loves, it’s getting the facts. After earning her stripes as a business news reporter in Washington, D.C., and publishing three books, this writer, editor, and researcher joined Fight because she believes getting information out can change the world. When she’s not digging up research or moving misplaced punctuation marks, she’s usually rowing, getting pulled to the park by her dog, or eating entire pizzas.
