It’s hard to believe but Factual Democracy’s inaugural call series is at the halfway mark. Three of our six calls are in the can, with three more to go!

As a founding member of Factual Democracy Project, you have exclusive access to recordings of each call. Below are the completed calls for your listening pleasure.

Bots & Computational Propaganda

Social media has been weaponized across the globe. This call will explore the various forms of computational propaganda and the ways our social media feeds are manipulated to amplify extremism and sway public opinion. Learn about the latest research as well as efforts to counter this weaponization by those on the front lines of the fight.

Tuesday, September 10, 2017
Speakers: Renee DiResta, Shireen Mitchell, Jonathon Morgan, and Lisa-Maria Neudert.

Conspiracy Theories & Right-Wing Media

An exploration of conspiracy theories: why people believe them, how the far right employs them as a communication tactic, strategies for countering them, and what to do if you or your organization become part of an Internet conspiracy theory.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017
Speakers: Brad Bauman, Will Sommer, Viren Swami, and Brooke Binkowski.

Social Media Heads to Washington

Tech companies are on the hot seat both for allowing Russia to target American voters on their platforms and for continuing to allow fake news created by hostile actors to thrive on their platforms. The Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a public hearing On November 1 and has invited Facebook, Google, and Twitter to testify. In advance of this hearing Factual Democracy Project’s next call will explore why our social media companies are so easily exploited, what Americans (regardless of political affiliation) expect tech companies to do about it, and how we can make our voices heard before the Senate Intelligence Committee and other congressional hearings.

Tuesday, October 10, 2017
Speakers: Lisa-Maria Neudert, Tom JensenElizabeth BeaversDelip Rao, and Sam Jeffers.
