The Rise Of Mis/Disinformation And Its Effects On Pennsylvania Voters

July 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

From fervent attacks on U.S. political campaigns to mis, dis, and mal-information targeting trust in our elections, autocratic interference in democracy is truly a global challenge with local implications. As voters in a key swing state, Pennsylvanians are on the front lines of information manipulation campaigns from foreign and domestic actors. Learn more about strategies, tools, and tactics used to impact voters and divide communities. Together we can discuss threats to Pennsylvania’s elections and how to build resilience against them.

This in-person panel discussion on Tuesday, July 26, 6:00PM–7:30PM EDT at City Theatre. Doors open at 5:00PM. Following the panel discussion audience members will have the opportunity to ask their questions for our panelists.
