Why News Literacy Matters

Many of us are choosing to avoid the news to avoid being bombarded and overwhelmed, but it is vital to the health of democracy to remain informed and civically engaged.

Becoming news literate empowers us with the knowledge and tools to cultivate a healthy relationship with news so that we can shape our society through our choices and voices as informed individuals.
