Description

In today’s society, news and information increasingly circulate through platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Join a conversation addressing the critical issues around social media.

In a space where misinformation and bias are so common, how do we engage with each other online in a civil and informed manner? What level of control should social media platforms exert over the content shared on their platforms? Is it their responsibility to regulate or call attention to misinformation or bias in posts, images, and ads, or is it solely up to users to engage with social media critically?

Join a conversation moderated by Lata Nott, attorney and Fellow for the First Amendment at the Freedom Forum, with Jameel Jaffer, Executive Director of the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University; Amy S. Mitchell, Director of Journalism Research at Pew Research Center; and Dave Sifry, Vice President of the Center for Technology and Society (CTS) for the Anti-Defamation League. The program will include a special introduction from Joel Schwitzer, Regional Director, AJC Dallas.

Space is limited. Please register for one ticket per device used. The conversation will take place on the online platform Zoom. A link to join will be sent to registered guests via email one hour before the start of the program.

The Civil Discourse Series is presented by The Meadows Foundation. This program is presented in partnership with AJC's Community of Conscience Coalition and Communities Foundation of Texas.
