A screening of the documentary film Trust Me, followed by a discussion about how we can use social media in more positive ways, led by Current Affairs Specialist, Shane Gronholz.
Trust Me explores manipulation and misinformation at the intersection of human nature and information technology. It explains how that drives a need for media literacy. Expert interviews point the way toward a positive future. The film is produced by the Getting Better Foundation, whose mission is to build trust through the truth and support of media literacy education.

"Trust Me is the one media literacy film you need to watch and share with those you love to provide them with critical thinking skills necessary to battle tech-addiction and manipulation. Trust Me gives students, educators, and parents the knowledge needed to stay healthy and happy."
