Join PEN America for a live and interactive media literacy training on Thursday, September 10 at 6:30pm ET to discuss best practices and defense strategies to combat election disinformation this fall.
During this 90-minute training, participants will review the fundamentals of disinformation, how to better identify manipulated content, and will leave equipped with PEN America’s Media Literacy Toolkit, which provides practical tools for how to identify false information and prevent its spread. The facilitator, Nora Benavidez, director of PEN America’s U.S. Free Expression Programs, has baked in timely and contextualized examples to make sense of misinformation in the context of the upcoming election and will build on our ongoing media literacy workshops and panels with local journalists.
