Solutions Journalism Network

In recent years, the effects of mis- and disinformation have been spotlighted as a growing threat to democracy. But that's only half the story: there are responses out there seeing success, and solutions journalists are covering them. This collection highlights quality solutions stories that show how communities, organizations, and governments are building trust in elections and stemming the flow of false narratives, from "pre-bunking" common conspiracies to sharing vetted information at culturally-specific gatherings.
