Creating a United Front Against Disinformation

Break The Fake Movement has collaborated with local and international MIL-related organizations for over six years. In partnership with Internews, they established the Media Civics Lab Fact-Checking Academy last year, training Filipino content creators and influencers to combat information disorder. To conclude the academy, Break The Fake Movement will pioneer the 1st Philippine Fact-Checking Summit on June 30, 2023.

This event aims to gather content creators and influencers, fact-checkers, media practitioners and journalists, NGOs, and government employees in order to create spaces for networking, partnerships, and collaboration – all in an effort to create a united front against one of the most pressing issues of today – disinformation.

It also aims to examine the crucial role of influencers in networked disinformation and explore strategies to turn their influence for social good. 

Lastly, the Summit will report on the Media Civics Lab Fact-Checking Academy’s success and recognize the top content creators, influencers, and partners who supported the program in challenging the Filipinos to cut through the social media noise and build communities of action that will help fight disinformation.
