We will learn how and why misinformation is spread, look at fear-based rumors that spread in our community, discuss myth vs. fact about Black Lives Matter and anti-fascism, and address the division in our community and how we move forward. Courtney Haile, co-founder of R.A.C.E. Matters, will be joined by misinformation expert Kim Bisheff of the Cal Poly Journalism Department, along with:
Dr. Elizabeth E. Sine, Cal Poly History Department
Derek Johnson, San Luis Obispo City Manager
Veronica Avery, Avery Acupuncture and Natural Medicine, activist and business owner
Cavin Stokes of Connect the Coast, DJ, longtime community member, and activist
Sheila Kearns, owner, Sheila Kearns Chocolate and Confections
Bettina Swigger, CEO, Downtown SLO
