The discovery of information and the ability to evaluate its reliability is a fundamental civic tool. Richmond librarians and researchers will help us understand how information is valued and share practical tips on how we can find and use data and evidence.

This is the third session in the RVA Engage virtual speaker series, Tools for Civic Action in our Democracy NOW, hosted by the University of Richmond’s Bonner Center for Civic Engagement, VCU Center for Community Engagement and Impact, and Community Foundation for a greater Richmond.
