Fact-Based Drug Policy Reporting
Changing The Narrative is a network of reporters, researchers, academics, and advocates concerned about the way media represents drug use and addiction.
Changing The Narrative’s mission is to help journalists and opinion leaders provide accurate, humane, and scientifically-grounded information in this contested terrain. They offer expert sources—including people with lived experience of the issues—and up-to-date, fact-checked, and evidence-based information on news and controversies.
Considerations For Photography
- Choose images that honor the experiences and dignity of people who use drugs
- Bring light to the harm reduction community
- Be considerate of visual aversions and sensational imagery
Harm reduction is essential. A harm reduction approach to drug use is the best strategy we have to end the overdose crisis, reduce risks associated with drug use, and affirm the dignity and bodily autonomy of every New Jerseyan.
