Each one teach one.

 

The saying “Each one teach one” is an African proverb that originated in America during slavery times. Slaves were seen as chattel and therefore denied an education so when one slave learned to read or write, it became his duty to teach someone else.

Disinformation and Democracy: Fighting for Facts

This video is from the National Democratic Institute, founded in 1983 to promote Democracy and Human Rights.

With Russia using information as a weapon, the people of democratic nations need to learn how to protect themselves.

“The weaponization of social media is a global challenge, both during and between elections. Emerging democracies have often been used to “weapons test” new approaches to computational propaganda and disinformation, and the work being done to counter it is critical to the future of democracy. NDI is proud to recognize these three organizations that have demonstrated a deep and abiding commitment to democracy and human rights through their efforts to combat this global threat of disinformation.”
