Take Action

  • Educate yourself through local voices. Follow initiatives like Metras Global, which puts out research-oriented content on Palestine.
  • Support and engage with journalists fighting misinformation. Cross-check information you receive across various sources and fact-checking websites
  • Read media coverage and social media posts critically. Call out false narratives online and push for local media publications and leaders to do better. 
  • Consider: who is cited as an authoritative source? Is there more research or verification to be done? How does language influence your perception/understanding of the information or the event? How do tropes and stereotypes affect your perception of current events?
