Titled “KAS Solutions Conference 2022: Fighting Fake News, Misinformation, and Disinformation,” the event will bring together experts and practitioners in journalism, public relations, technology, and law.
It aims to provide the tools and resources needed by the public to not just reactively – but proactively – fight false information.
