Stop Lies and Spread the Truth – Help Combat the Disimformation in Our Public Discourse

October 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

https://www.mobilize.us/indivisiblegreaterandover/event/411938/ Stop the Lies and Spread the Truth!
9/15, 9/29, 10/13, 10/27 11 AM to 12 Noon
9/22, 10/6, 10/20 5-6 PM
Help combat the disinformation in our public discourse!
Join us to spread the truth and clean out the lies.
There are some bad actors who excel at spreading catchy lies to undermine our democracy. There are some who share incorrect information, perhaps unknowingly. Both are a danger to our public discourse.
Together, we can make a difference.
Join us to learn how to fight disinformation two ways:
• Identifying sources of disinformation and reporting it to Common Cause
• Creating and sharing a positive counter narrative with the Truth Brigade.
In these action hours, we’ll provide an overview of each tactic — what you can do and the impact you can have. Then you can choose an action to try and join a breakout room to get started.
Already comfortable with a tactic and ready to roll? You can go straight to your breakout room to take action with your friends.
Need a twitter account? In one of our breakout rooms, we can help you set up an anonymous account. All you will need is an email account.
Many thanks for joining us!
