Media Literacy Today: The Real Impact of Fake News


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

In a world where the news cycle is 24/7, people may have difficulty discerning what information is real and what isn’t. Information overload can affect one’s ability to understand the impact “fake” news has on various populations. In this session, participants will be provided with an interactive, multi-sensory experience that focuses on media literacy, social justice and self-care. This session will benefit participants who are interested in learning how to process media and make effective change.
