Efforts to spread Misinformation, Disinformation and Malinformation (MDM) narratives among Latinos to hinder their participation in the country’s political processes have existed for a long time, but these efforts have been accelerated by the information revolution and other features of our modern society.

Roberta Braga, DDIA Executive Director, joined A Perfect Storm: Defining MDM and Exploring the Risk Factors that Lead to Its Spread Among Latinos to discuss the factors that lead to MDM's spread among Latinos, and shed light on efforts to strike the right balance between ensuring information integrity and protecting free speech.

She spoke alongside Dr. Inga Thrauthig, Head of Research, Propaganda Research Lab at the Center for Media Engagement, Moody College of Communication, University of Texas at Austin and the Hon. Luz Urbaez Weinberg, Former Vice President, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.
