We've got two new Citizen Toolkit classes for you!
Fake News: In today's world of increasingly partisan and vitriolic politics, the words "fake news" get thrown around a lot. But what does that mean? What is fake news and where does it come from? Who creates it and how does it spread? How can you know what you're hearing and reading is accurate and true? This class will take you inside the wild, devious world of fake news and give you the tools you need to fight it.
