Location: Online

From newsfeeds to comments sections, misinformation and conflict are hard to avoid while scrolling. Engaging with one another in unproductive ways and residing in deep echo chambers fuels dangerous polarization among Americans.

Tune in on Friday, January 27 at 12pm (ET) for a lively debate about the challenges around online discourse and polarization in public life from two leaders in the field. Convergence President & CEO David Eisner will moderate this spirited conversation between Harvard Fellow and journalist Heidi Legg and first amendment attorney Ari Cohn.
