Disinformation is the cause of so much dissent in this country and is a primary threat to our democracy and voting rights. Indivisible-RISE Newburyport's Countering Disinformation group works to counter disinformation that is spread through traditional and social media. The group does so in several ways, including:
Monitoring social media to uncover and report disinformation and misinformation
Posting "Truth Sandwiches" through Indivisible's Truth Brigade
Working to reduce the visibility and power of right-winged media
Seeking to hold social media providers more accountable for harmful disinformation posted on their platforms
Pressuring corporate donors to drop purveyors of radical right disinformation.
The group maintains resources recommending activities to help counter the spread of harmful disinformation and provides training as needed. Click here to join our group, learn more, and engage in this important work. Even spending a few minutes can make a difference!
