CCC Goes 'Beyond Fake News'

Mar 7, 2019, 08:52 AM by CCC Staff

OREGON CITY - The news can represent and misrepresent the facts and it can difficult to find accurate information to make decisions for our communities. To help break through the clutter, the Clackamas Community College library has partnered with Oregon Humanities to host a free conversation, "Beyond Fake News: How We Find Accurate Information about the World," Thursday, March 14, 3-5 p.m.

Led by Kelly McElroy, an outreach librarian at Oregon State University, the conversation will help demystify how to find the information needed for work, school and play.

Oregon Humanities connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. Through programs like the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas that influence daily lives and the state's future.

"Beyond Fake News" will take place in the Community Center on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla Ave. It is free and open to the public.

Oregon Humanities is an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and a partner of the Oregon Cultural Trust.
