Bilingual Media Literacy Workshop
October 19, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join PEN America, All Voting is Local Florida, and Respeta Mi Gente for a live and interactive media literacy training, offered in both Spanish and English, on Monday, October 19 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. We have baked in timely and localized 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. We’ll discuss how bad actors target BIPOC communities with election-related disinformation to sow distrust and how to use media literacy skills to combat the erosive effects of these disinformation campaigns.
