Stand With The Facts

KUOW and UW’s Center for an Informed Public have launched a new project: Stand with the Facts. This collaboration addresses the spread of misinformation – How do we spot it? How can we stop it? The urgency of this project could not be greater in light of both the political climate and the current health crisis. According to a recent NPR poll, voters consider “misleading information” the #1 threat to keeping our elections safe and accurate. NPR also reports that the spread of misinformation as news about the virus is spreading faster than the disease.

Watch videos of the online events hosted this summer; utilize the Stand with the Facts tool kit, sign up for KUOW’s Election Newsletter and find out ways you can combat fake news and misinformation and stand with the facts.

More Stand with the Facts virtual events are in the works for the fall.
