WORKSHOPS ON COPING WITH DISINFORMATION

Overwhelmed with information? Hard to tell what’s true or false? Concerned about how disinformation is affecting our democracy? This session will help address these issues, providing practical advice and tools to confront disinformation in the news and to discern what is fact and fake.

The highly interactive workshop, free of charge, features numerous social media, traditional media text, video and still image examples of disinformation. It was held at more than two dozen libraries throughout Westchester County in 2019. The sessions are suitable for adults, as well as high school and college students. No reservations are required.
