Find Facts Fast
Launched ahead of the 2022 U.S. midterm elections, Find Facts Fast is a free text message course designed to help Americans of all ages and backgrounds discern fact from fiction online and be informed participants of the democratic process. The weeklong training offers daily lessons on key digital media literacy topics proven to help people quickly discover reliable information and trustworthy sources across the internet and in their social feeds.
