FAKE NEWS/DUMB VIEWS
With media sources no one can trust and algorithms dictating our content, what can we do to cut through the white noise to better understand each other’s experiences?
In 2019, we step outside of the echo chamber and into each others living rooms. Developing our understanding of the lived experience of our peers throughout the world.
Building bridges and growing our empathy one new friend at a time.
Putting to rest the fake news and dumb views bombarding our feeds.
