Event description
KUOW & Center for an Informed Public Presents: Stand with the Facts

About this Event

In this social media era, how we share information and what we share is changing – and with this change we’ve seen a rise in the spread of misinformation, disinformation and other forms of manipulation.

Misinformation is everywhere. From deep fakes to false stories, what will it mean for voters in 2020? And how can YOU spot it and stop it? Join KUOW and the Center for an Informed Public on Wednesday, March 18 at UW Tacoma for Bots, Trolls and Your Vote. KUOW’s All Things Considered host Kim Malcolm and a panel of experts will explore these questions as well as what’s being done by industry, government and other institutions to confront the spread of misinformation and what you can do.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

Moderator:

Kim Malcolm – All Things Considered host, KUOW

Featured guests:

Kim Wyman – Secretary of State, Elections

Monica Nickelsburg – Civic Editor, GeekWire
