Making Democracy Work

League of Women Voters of New Rochelle:
Deeds not Words

The New Rochelle League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The League of Women Voters is sponsoring an interactive, nonpartisan workshop "Fact or Fake: Exploring the Role of Media in Politics" at the New Rochelle Public Library, 1 Library Plaza, on Tuesday, May 28, from 5:30 to 7 pm.

There is no charge and all are welcome. Reservations are appreciated by e-mailing LWVNR@aol.com, but drop-ins are welcome.

The workshop will explore the changing shape of news presentation as technology and social media play a more extensive role in influencing political change. Topics will include spotting media biases and fake news, the benefits of a comprehensive media diet, and different ways to access the news.

The workshops are being presented at public libraries and community sites by LWV chapters. It was produced by the LWV of Westchester Education Foundation and funded by a generous grant from the Westchester Community Foundation.
