Targets of Propaganda

​Join us for an online discussion about how digital technologies are reshaping people's ideas about the scope and limitations of freedom of expression. The rise of hate speech and other harms caused by social media has led some people to question the value of free speech, as media companies and governments use strategies such as content moderation and regulation. Does a wide open "marketplace of ideas" still make sense in an era when everyone has a public voice? 

Who is targeted to receive harmful propaganda and how does it affect them? 


​DATE: Tuesday, June 13, 2023

TIME: 12 - 1 PM EST or 7 - 8 PM EST. 

LOCATION: Free online. This event is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.

NOTE: Courageous Conversations are offered at two different times to accommodate people's busy schedules. Choose the time that works for you! 

Courageous Conversations are lively facilitated discussions where we activate critical thinking, listening, and self-expression skills by talking about social media, news stories, memes, social influencers, and more. We are thrilled to be partnering with Cortico, a social media listening platform that brings people together for small-group conversations around their lived experiences. Through a powerful combination of AI and human listening, we aim to surface community voices into public dialogue that showcases and strengthens media literacy competencies essential for citizenship.
