Wading Through Mis/Disinformation in the Media

If you're struggling to discern factual news from inaccurate accounts, or worse, intentionally false statements, this program of LWV of Wisconsin should be helpful. Get details from Dee Hall, co-founder of Wisconsin Watch, in the state League's virtual presentation, "Disinformation in Democracy: Identifying & Fighting It", next Monday, October 3, at 6 p.m.  Hall will cover disinformation in the media, how to combat mis/disinformation, how to talk to family and friends about it, and how to verify your own newsfeeds.   Read more and register here.

Join our League and its community partners, Citizens' Climate Lobby-Appleton/Fox Cities, ESTHER Environmental Justice Task Force, and PopEarth in co-sponsoring Earth Day: Election Edition, an event to make climate a hot topic.
