Stand for Racial Justice Workshop: Spin Zones & Echo Chambers (part of the Navigating a Polarized World series of the SFRJ Task Force III)
Derrick Williams, Professor, Speech Communications,
The average person gets their news and information
from sources that are comfortable and familiar to them.
But one of the risks of relying on sources you already
agree with is that you may find yourself in an echo
chamber — a place where opposing ideas are not
considered, or sometimes even welcome.
Discover how echo chambers and spin zones perpetuate
the polarization of politics, opinions and positions and
learn strategies for avoiding or escaping from them in
order to become a better consumer.
Open to all!
