Election Mis/Disinformation

With dis/misinformation campaigns and voter interference at scale with the current mass media infrastructure, this event will focus our discussion on Election mis/disinformation campaigns now and how we expect this to evolve over the years, Accurate voting information for voters, Use of social media to combat mis/disinformation, Equity and fairness in voting

Publicity Toolkit with Isabel Wilkerson

The Office of Student Life, in partnership with GW's Fraternity and Sorority Life councils and the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, is thrilled to bring to the GW community a discussion with Isabel Wilkerson, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of the New York Times Best Seller, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. In conversation with Adena Kirstein, Executive Director of GW Hillel, Wilkerson will discuss her recent work, which offers a caste system as a framework by which we understand injustice, inequity, and discrimination in America. Wilkerson writes of topics that are difficult to read about, but her work is powerful, necessary, and comes at a pivotal moment in time for our country.  All Students
