Join the Toronto Black Covid-19 Taskforce and TAIBU Community Health Centre for a Zoom Town Hall “Misinformation and Conspiracy Theories” on Saturday, February 27, 2021, for a discussion that will contribute to an ongoing collective conversation on the convergence of multiple crises, including COVID-19.
Social media, globalization and the pandemic are intersecting to amplify a wide range of “false facts.” There is a whole set of ideas that may contain a kernel of truth but are otherwise completely false. Most of the information coming from Instagram follow certain themes:
- Vaccine production companies cannot be trusted.
- Nature and fruits are the real medicine.
- Doctors don't know everything.
Facebook posts including the following:
- Fears of being microchipped.
- Vaccines will alter DNA.
- Getting the vaccine is the mark of the beast.
- Side effects including death.
- The vaccine is an experiment on the population.
- Fears that the vaccine includes fetal matter/tissue.
The Town Hall will begin at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. This is an important moment of transformation, please register to join these crucial collective conversations before spaces fill-up!
