Join local educator Aaron Korbacher for a peace café: Disrupting Disinformation: How the Moral Panic around Drag Story Time Is Manufactured—and What We Can Do About It. The presentation will explore the origins of the recent surge in online disinformation related to trans and queer people. Then participate in a discussion of what we can do to disrupt it.

Natasha Edmunds, of Neighbours United, will share the approach known as deep canvassing—a strategy to overcome fear and bridge divides by listening deeply, connecting with empathy and promoting learning in non-judgmental ways.
