Organized By : International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC)
Movements for social justice have long had a complicated relationship with the media. At the best of times, media can play a fundamental role in advancing peace and justice, but it also can have devastating effects on struggles for human rights, blurring the lines between fact and fiction, and advancing agendas that are divisive and exclusive.
This webinar will bring together members from across the globe to showcase their efforts to monitor and offset destructive media outlets. Topics to be discussed include the delicate balance between hate speech and freedom of speech, the sheer abundance of media today both traditional and digital, and the whitewashing of history past and present.
