Don’t miss next week’s webinar on AI and fact-checking!


Have you been fooled by AI? We can help.
How to fact-check in the AI age. Free webinar. Tuesday August 8th, 7pm ET/4pm ET.

Maybe you got a chuckle from a recent artificial intelligence-generated hoax — an image of Bigfoot towering over a man that was created using descriptive text. But what's less funny is that AI can develop sophisticated content in the blink of an eye that can deceive and do harm.

AI has further muddied the waters of the misinformation landscape, making it harder than ever to tell what's real from what's fake. And bad actors are delighted to oblige.

That's why we want to be sure you don't miss our free webinar How to fact-check in the AI age on Tuesday, Aug. 8. We will discuss the fundamentals of fact-checking and show you how to debunk false images and videos, both AI-generated and human-made.

Please join us at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Tuesday, Aug. 8.

The webinar will be led by the News Literacy Project's Dan Evon and DeMario Phipps-Smith. Dan writes for RumorGuard™, which uses examples of viral misinformation to help people learn to separate fact from fiction. He previously was a reporter for Snopes, the internet's oldest fact-checking site. DeMario leads news literacy training for adults around the country and has a background in digital media at various publications, including his hometown paper, the Chicago Sun-Times.

Don’t miss this lineup of journalists who can help you find news you can trust


Register now for our free webinars!
How to Find News You Can Trust. Skills for seeking credible information. Free webinar series. Wednesdays. April 12, 19, and 26. 4pm Eastern Time/1pm Pacific Time.

We've lined up some terrific journalists for our free webinar series How to find news you can trust. You won't want to miss these fascinating and informative conversations!

The series begins April 12 and runs for three consecutive Wednesdays, starting at 4 p.m. ET. Register once to access all three sessions!

 

April 12: Session 1 | What is quality journalism?

News outlets help us make informed decisions, but the process of creating news isn't always transparent. In this session, journalists Brandon Pope of WBEZ Chicago and Molly Parker of Lee Enterprises will discuss how they build credibility and trust with the public and will describe the standards that guide their newsgathering. This session will pull the curtain back on the practice of quality, ethical journalism and its mission to inform us accurately.

Brandon is an award-winning and Emmy-nominated journalist, media critic and columnist, and host of the podcasts On The Block: Powered by Block Club Chicago on CW26 and the MAKING series from WBEZ and NPR. Molly, a ProPublica distinguished fellow, is an investigative reporter with Lee Enterprises' Public Service Team, where she works with regional reporters in 25 states to produce impactful, data-driven local journalism.

 

April 19: Session 2 | Understanding news media bias

People frequently perceive and allege bias in news coverage, but what does this really mean? What makes a piece of news biased, and who decides? Journalist Amethyst J. Davis, founder of the Harvey World Herald, a hyperlocal, independent newsroom in Illinois, and Stephanie Casanova of Signal Cleveland, a nonprofit newsroom that fuses community building with local news reporting, join us to discuss how the journalistic standards we learned about in Session 1 can be applied to confront and avoid news bias. This session will empower you to evaluate the fairness, accuracy and objectivity of news coverage.

Amethyst oversees growth and development, including outlining editorial trajectory and content, at the Harvey World Herald. A member of the community advisory board for Chicago Public Media, she is a Casey Fellow with the National Association of Black Journalists Black News & Views. Stephanie is the criminal justice reporter with Signal Cleveland and formerly covered criminal justice and breaking news at the Chicago Tribune.

 

April 26: Session 3 | How fact-checking works

Fact-checking organizations are taking up the charge to combat the spread of misinformation, debunking some of the most viral content springing up on social media. Fact-checkers Dan Evon of the News Literacy Project and Rafael Olavarría of Factchequeado will talk about their work and share skills that you can use to check the accuracy of information.

Dan debunks viral rumors for NLP's RumorGuard™ platform, which empowers the public to push back against misinformation. Prior to joining NLP in 2022, Dan worked as a reporter for Snopes, the internet's oldest fact-checking site. Rafael, a Venezuelan immigrant who fled political persecution, began his journalism career as a producer and writer for CNN and won 11 Southeast Emmy Awards as a multimedia journalist with Univisión.

 

We look forward to seeing you April 12!

The News Literacy Project

P.S. If you miss one of the sessions, don't worry, we'll share recordings of all three.

Introducing MCAN's 2023 Legislative Priorities!

With the new legislative session well underway, we are excited to announce the Massachusetts Climate Action Network's 2023-2024 legislative priorities! 

These priorities reflect legislative efforts that must be implemented for our state to advance a just fossil-fuel-free future for all. They include 15 bills that center around four critical areas of action: equitable building decarbonization; the reduction of embodied carbon in our buildings; equitable climate action in municipal utilities; and the advancement of energy and environmental justice.

See MCAN's full list of legislative priorities here.

Register to join the webinar Feb 8 at 5 PM

Of our 15 legislative priorities, MCAN has identified four top priorities that are critical to building a healthy, resilient, equitable, green future for all.
