Tactical Media Literacy for Vulnerable Communities

In this session, we highlight the work of American Spaces (overseas American cultural centers) and how we tackle the misinformation crisis in vulnerable populations through tactical media literacy training. Youth engagement experts from Serbia and Indonesia share their strategies for combatting misinformation and dispelling stereotypes. Together, we will explore how our experiences can help media educators, librarians, and cultural programmers facing these challenges in their own communities.
