This post has expired and the event has already taken place.

Overwhelmed with information? Hard to tell what’s true or false? Concerned about how disinformation is affecting our democracy? The League of Women Voters of Westchester is kicking off a second year of workshops to help address these issues, providing practical advice and tools to confront disinformation in the news and to discern what is fact and fake.

Led by international journalism and communications veteran Andy Katell of White Plains, the 90-minute non-partisan workshop was developed by the League and will be held at the Library on Thursday, February 6 at 7:00 p.m.

Mr. Katell brings to the program 14 years of experience as a reporter and editor with The Associated Press news agency, along with PR agency and corporate communications work on a wide variety of issues.

The highly interactive workshop features numerous social media, traditional media text, video and still image examples of disinformation. It was held at more than two dozen libraries throughout Westchester
County in 2019. The sessions are suitable for adults, as well as high school and college students.

No registration required.
