About the event
On Monday, October 09, at the East Rec Center, the Oakmont Progressives will screen the video “Trustworthy: All Voices Heard”, with a social starting at 6:30 and the film at 7 PM.
The documentary explores how misinformation on all sides has fueled the country’s growing polarization, and how we can hear all voices and find common ground. If you have felt despair over the vast chasm that seems to separate the people of our country, this film is a must see. In it, you will hear both media experts and everyday people talk about how the media can help or hurt our democracy. The film is very even-handed, favoring neither the left nor the right.
Trustworthy is a documentary that chronicles a 5,300-mile journey across America to explore how the growing crisis of trust in media threatens our democracy, and whether we can find common ground. From small towns to urban enclaves, the film makers speak with journalists, experts and everyday Americans across the political spectrum about how we got to this critical moment, how we can become better news and information consumers, and how we can come together to rise above the misinformation and discourse aimed at dividing our communities.
This screening is sponsored by the Oakmont Progressives, but we believe that it is important for all, regardless of political affiliation or opinion, so we are inviting all Oakmonters to join us. And please feel free to come at 6:30 for the social time and bring light appetizers and libations to share if you wish.
