[VIRTUAL] As the South Votes: A #WhatToExpect2020 Town Hall
We know that disinformation and misinformation, alongside more blatant tactics of voter suppression, have plagued groups of voters across the South from rural Arkansas, to Black communities to Houston, to the coasts of Florida. At this event, Scalawag and PEN America will shed light on what journalists and community organizers are doing to protect the vote and serve voter needs this election cycle. Attend the panel, hear critical updates from reporters, and ask your questions to experienced journalists and experts working in your community. If you plan to tweet about the event, follow us on Twitter at @penamerica and use the hashtag #WhatToExpect2020.
This virtual conversation is free and open to the public. We encourage community members to text Scalawag your questions for our panelists before and during the event!

This event is part of PEN America’s #WhatToExpect2020 initiative, which we launched this fall to empower voters to understand the uniqueness of the 2020 election, inoculate the public from the threats of disinformation, and build awareness of the electoral process.
