Unpacking Misinformation and Disinformation
There is a long history of tactics used to disenfranchise voters. We have experienced how flyers, billboards, and other offline tactics are used to tell voters incorrect information that could prevent them from participating in an election. The interference in our elections has a significant impact. We've seen the ongoing attempts to spread inaccurate data within the African American community on several fronts.
From falsified information on the election date to misinformation on the steps needed to verify your registration, there has been no stone unturned in attempts to ensure that the vote of the African American community is discredited or that we don't take our full authority at this moment by voting.
The NAACP has continued to fight at all costs to identify disinformation and to prevent it with valid facts so that our community can make informed and intelligent decisions when casting our ballot in this upcoming election. Learn more about how we push Faith Forward during this election season.
