False and misleading information continues to impact free and fair participation in democracies. Sub-national level administrators and local governments are working to tackle this complicated slew of challenges at scale. In April 2023, Equis Research’s Counter-Disinformation Department, now launched as DDIA, hosted Secretary of State of Colorado Jena Marie Griswold, Mayor of Bogotá Claudia López Hernández, SOUTHCOM General Laura Richardson and a great panel of civil society representatives from the Americas at the Cities Summit of the Americas! The event was in partnership with the Arizona State University - Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs at the U.S. Department of State. https://www.citiessummitoftheamericas.org/agenda
