International Fact-Checking Day
International Fact-Checking Day, promoted by the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) in partnership with fact-checking organisations around the world, takes place on April 2.
Fact-Checking Day is an annual celebration and rallying cry for more facts in public health, journalism, and everyday life.
The website offers tip sheets and a reading list for everyday media consumers, course material for high school and college students, an interactive quiz, and more.
The IFCN has announced three webinars. On April 4, there will be a panel discussion on the fact-checking community’s collaborative initiative to combat disinformation around the war in Ukraine.
The second IFCN Talk, on April 5, will focus on why fact-checkers are under attack, and how to respond to the harassment.
The last webinar on April 6 will be about IFCN’s grantmaking efforts to support the fact-checking community.
