Stop The Lies and Spread the Truth – Wednesday Action Hours

December 1 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST

Join us to spread the truth and clean out the lies.

Our democracy is under attack. Disinformation (also known as “lies”) is used to promote authoritarianism or simply in service of greed. Democracy requires a foundation of truth and collective trust in our institutions.

Take one hour a week. Promote truth and build trust.

Join us to learn how to fight disinformation two ways:

  • Identify sources of disinformation and report it to Common Cause, who have the resources and know-how to take it down
  • Create and share a positive counter narrative with the Truth Brigade

In these action hours, we’ll provide an overview of each tactic. You’ll learn what you can do and the impact you can have. Then, you choose an action and join a breakout room to get started.

Already good-to-go with your tactic of choice?

You can go straight to a breakout room where you will take action with folks who right there with you — ready to save democracy.

Need a hand with honing your Twitter account?

Both of our actions are based on Twitter, though they are both applicable to other media as well. If you need a hand with honing your Twitter account, we can have a breakout room ready for you. Those who are brand new to Twitter — have no fear! All you will need is an email account. We can get you rolling.

To prepare for this event, we invite you review our Combatting Disinformation Action Hour Resources

Many thanks for joining us!
