‘Covering and Protecting Your Elections’ coming to Cbus

SPJ is teaming up with Google to stage “Covering and Protecting Your Elections,” a free workshop that will provide journalists in key swing states with “tools to detect misinformation, protect yourself and your data online, and connect with voters.”

The Central Ohio SPJ Chapter is partnering with the Kiplinger Program in Public Affairs Journalism and Ohio University to host the traveling SPJ-Google News Initiative workshop to the Columbus region.

Local presentation of the free workshop will take place from 1-5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2 at OU’s Dublin campus. Map/directions
