Social Media, Misinformation, and Democracy

National Institute for Civil Discourse

Location: Online

The National Institute for Civil Discourse and Leadership Ohio invite you to join this session on Social Media, Misinformation, and Democracy.

In many of our communities, the differences and divisions in our society have been inescapable these last years. As we grapple with issues related to democracy, disinformation and civil discourse we find ourselves asking: Are we coming apart, or is this a new beginning of coming together? How should we think about social media and its outsized role in our democratic life?

The webinar features Dr. Timothy Shaffer, Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Chair of Civil Discourse at the Biden School of Public Policy, University of Delaware, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, and Cleveland City Council Member Stephanie Howse. James W. Murray, VP of Leadership Ohio, will MC the event. The featured panelists will answer questions from the audience in the final portion of the webinar.
