The Reality Behind
Advocates For The Exploited
Reality TV provides us with entertainment to escape our lives by watching real-life dramas unfold on our TVs. While the content is enjoyable, you may not realize how much exploitation goes on behind the scenes.
Many cast members are treated poorly, subject to inhumane working conditions, sophisticated psychological manipulation tactics and a threatening atmosphere- all for little to no pay.
Cast members often leave shows mentally distraught with nowhere to turn. When past cast members have attempted to speak up, they are subject to threats of millions of dollars in lawsuits from the industry that makes millions off of exploiting them.
HOW WE HELP
The UCAN Foundation partners with a network of mental health and legal experts to ensure cast members have the resources to make informed decisions and to seek help in a safe and supportive environment.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
We all enjoy Reality TV because of who is in front of the camera, the cast.
But these same people get little to nothing of what you pay streaming services to watch them.
It's time support the cast instead of the companies who exploit them.
