About Truth in Reality

Truth In Reality is a non-profit social advocacy organization pioneering a movement to change the imbalanced media depictions of women of color, especially on violent reality television. Through education, research, public awareness campaigns, social media engagement, strategic partnerships, and public commentary we aim to change society's acceptance of gender-based violence and ultimately reduce its incidence in the Black community. 

We are not anti-reality shows. We're against the unilaterally negative and stereotypical portrayal of Black women in all forms of media.
