It is getting harder to separate fact from fiction.

In today's world, we are often left feeling after watching the news, reading an article, or scrolling on our social media. The truth has become a mechanism to share misinformation to create confusion amount of everyday people.

This is where the News Literacy Project steps into as an organization that started in 2008. They are a nonpartisan national education nonprofit that provides programs and resources for educators and the public to teach, learn and share the abilities needed to be smart, active consumers of news and information and equal and engaged participants in a democracy.

This is a conversation that breaths life and hope that the future is getting brighter and that change will come.
