Disinformation and Our Civic Future

Business for America

Location: Online

It’s no secret: America’s electoral system faces a crisis of trust, driven by the proliferation of disinformation and conspiracy theories that threaten the public’s faith in the civic discourse and the conduct of elections. All this breeds polarization and economic instability.

As institutions that depend on a well-functioning government and society, US businesses have a vested interest in addressing these challenges and investing in the future of the democratic system.

But what, specifically, can businesses do to address these challenges?

Some companies are already taking steps to educate their workforces and customers to spot unfounded claims about the integrity of our election infrastructure. As trusted institutions, businesses can help to respond to distortions, myths, and outright lies about how elections are conducted and verified in the U.S.

Join us on October 29th, 2:00 to 3:00 PM ET for a timely webinar—featuring leaders from business, tech, and civil society. We’ll explore the risks facing democracy, the state-of-play regarding state and federal elections policy, and practical actions the private sector can take to promote trust and transparency in campaigns and elections.
