About the webinar

A pandemic of misinformation has broken out alongside the coronavirus. Communities across the world are dealing with competing information sources that are undermining life-saving advice from public health officials, not to mention rumors about protests and the 2020 elections. In this JAWS webinar, you will learn how to identify and correct the misinformation that you find.
Moreover, immigrant communities are uniquely impacted by the coronavirus and misinformation that spreads as quickly as the infection. In this webinar, you will also learn how to better connect with immigrant communities by helping them fight misinformation and keep their families safe and informed.
Come prepared to discuss challenges and examples from your newsroom or community.
