The crisis of trust and truth impacts all parts of society, including our most fundamental institutions. The intentional spread of false information, and efforts to drive its dissemination across society, undermines trust and community cohesion.
We prioritize interventions that reach across all aspects of the information ecosystem, from the news media to technology platforms, to academics and advocates. Our focus is on addressing the greatest harms and building trust in information providers as part of a healthy democracy.
