This workshop, led by disinformation researchers from Voto Latino and APIAVote, will show attendees how to incorporate anti-disinformation narratives into their strategic communications and programming plans. We’ll share key findings from our research and actionable strategies to identify the disinformation narratives that may impact your operational objectives. You’ll also learn how to monitor online platforms, identify members of your coalition most vulnerable to disinformation narratives, and create effective counter-disinformation content and programming campaigns. The session will include free and low-cost resources for organizations with limited funds they can dedicate to counter disinformation.
