Protest & Disinformation: Using Media Literacy to Spot It & Stop It

Protests and Disinformation banner

PEN America and The EveryLibrary Institute and The Daily Kos Liberation League invite you to attend a live and interactive media literacy webinar about protests and disinformation on Friday, June 12 from 11:30am – 1:00pm Eastern Time.

Amid mass demonstrations against police violence, misinformation and disinformation about the protests are spreading fast online. False, misleading, and misattributed stories and images can polarize communities, unfairly damage reputations, and obscure the truth. By sharing and amplifying this content we often further the goals of those who aim to discredit and divide. We have designed a unique virtual workshop to equip communities with media literacy tools to spot disinformation surrounding recent protests — and to apply these skills to help stem the spread of misleading content. In this session, we’ll focus on how to verify images, videos, and sources about protests, and what to do after the discovery of manipulated media.

This webinar is the fourth installment of a virtual series by PEN America and EveryLibrary Institute, which will be facilitated by Nora Benavidez, director of PEN America’s U.S. free expression programs. The webinar is free and open to the public.

Check out our new tip sheet on how to verify disinformation about the protests.
