Why Truth Check
Black communities are constantly flooded with misinformation on social media in the form of hoaxes, false claims, and flat out lies. With the simple click of a button — a like, a share, a comment — fake and harmful info in your newsfeed can spread out of control. Truth Check is about arming ourselves with the tools we need to stop the spread of misinformation.
The Truth Check Training gives you the skills you need to spot false and fraudulent information. Protect your social media timeline from fake news.
Literacy is no longer just the ability to read and write. Information comes in many forms and social media messaging will only continue to expand the way we share facts! These platforms connect us to one another and improve our access to important information.
But not all sources are created equal! It’s important that we learn to analyze, evaluate, and share truthful content to avoid the spread of misinformation.
