Join us later this month for an important conversation about the impact of misinformation on our local communities — especially communities of color.
The Colorado News Collaborative, the Institute for Science and Policy at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Colorado State University’s Center for Public Deliberation will host a two-part in-person event to discuss what can be done about misinformation..
This effort builds on work we’ve shared with you before, COLab’s Voices Initiative – a project done in partnership with Colorado Media Project since early 2021 that has given birth to four working groups centering the voices of Black, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and Native/Indigenous Coloradans to ensure that local news coverage reflects, respects and reaches out to the state’s communities of color.
A key goal is to tap into the wisdom and creativity of leaders of communities of color to help develop and refine ideas for communities across Colorado to better address this critical issue.
If you identify as belonging to a community of color — or you are an ally — we’d love for you to join us for this two-part series. If you think others in your community or your organization would be interested in joining, please share this invitation.
The event will take place at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on June 14 and 28, from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m., and refreshments will be provided.
If you are traveling from outside of the metro area and/or need childcare support, please let us know as we have a limited number of stipends. We will also provide a small thank you gift to show our appreciation for your participation.
