Join us for a screening of the award winning documentary Merchants of Doubt followed by a panel discussion about climate denial and the importance of media literacy. Faculty from Saint Joseph’s and Temple Universities and representatives from the National Association of Media Literacy Education will give their perspectives and answer questions. This topic is critical in a time when the veracity of science is being questioned and the facts can be confused with “alternative facts.” Join us in understanding how “spin” can create confusion, jeopardizing the health of people and the planet.
This event is open to students, faculty, K-12 teachers, school board members, community members and all who are interested in making sure that the consequences we suffered for the lies the tobacco companies perpetrated through the media don’t happen to us again with Climate Change!
