POSTPONED: Truth, Lies & Propaganda: How Disinformation Will Infect the 2020 Elections

TUESDAY JUN 2, 2020 5:00 PM PDT

We have postponed tonight’s online program in light of the protests in Los Angeles and across the nation in support of Black lives. The program will be rescheduled soon.

Read our public statement about how we are planning to support the community-led organizations who are doing daily, on-the-ground anti-racist work.

Hammer Forum is made possible by the Rosenbloom Family

This election cycle, voters face an onslaught of campaign information, much of it disinformation. Campaigns, governments, and others are using both familiar and emerging technologies—from social media and bots to artificial intelligence and algorithms—to polarize voters, spread false narratives, sow confusion, and drown out the truth. Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson speaks with The Atlantic's McKay Coppins, The Alethea Group founder Lisa Kaplan, and University of Texas at Austin School of Journalism assistant professor Samuel Woolley about how the 2020 election will be impacted by information warfare.
