PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs (SRL), in partnership with MediaWise, will air Face the Facts: Election 2020 Youth Town Hall, a one-hour, virtual youth town hall streaming on NewsHour digital platforms tonight at 7pm ET.
Hosted by Amna Nawaz, PBS NewsHour senior correspondent, the livestream event will showcase conversations with teens and first-time voters about how they’re engaging in this year’s historic election, and educational elements on how to spot election misinformation. Special guests will also include Hari Sreenivasan, NewsHour senior correspondent and anchor for NewsHour Weekend, and Savannah Sellers, NBC News and MSNBC correspondent and co-host of Stay Tuned, NBC’s twice-daily news show on Snapchat and Instagram. Nawaz, Sreenivasan and Sellers are MediaWise Ambassadors who work with MediaWise — a digital media literacy project from the Poynter Institute — to teach people of all ages how to sort fact from fiction online.
