We are pleased to share our final webinar in our Design for Democracy series as well as additional workshops. Join us! Defense Against Disinformation
11:00 a.m. PT | 2:00 p.m. ET
The proliferation of disinformation and fake news damages relationships, distorts democracy, and threatens public health. A 2019 study by the cybersecurity firm CHEQ and the University of Baltimore has found that fake news is costing the global economy up to $78 billion every year. Join our panelists Marc Ambinder, Andre Banks, and Deepthi Welaratna to learn how we can do as designers, communicators, and citizens to identify and counter disinformation and fake news in our communities.
