Salon duc Tape – Say This, Not That – March 8th

**********

How can we avoid repeating industry disinformation in our fight to halt the harms of oil & gas pollution?

The oil and gas industry has run effective misinformation and disinformation campaigns to try to shape the conversation on pollution and its human impacts. Their distortions undermine the urgency to fight pollution and hinder environmental action.  We need effective tools and strategies to frame the conversation accurately and take control of the narrative.  At the salon on Friday, March 8th, David Gold and Leah Zamesnik of the Environmental Polling Consortium and Ryan Clover-Owens of the Halt the Harm Network will guide us on how to avoid industry messaging and frame our messaging effectively.

David Gold (Director) and Leah Zamesnik (Partnerships Manager) operate the Environmental Polling Consortium (EPC), a centralized hub for environmental advocates’ public opinion research needs. By collecting, distributing, and interpreting polling data on climate and environmental issues, the EPC works to make research more accessible and to democratize data across the movement.  Ryan Clover-Owens offers trainings and digital campaign support to leaders in Halt the Harm Network. He hosts webinars and online networking events for network leaders, and sends a regular email newsletter with updates from the network.  Ryan has been working on fracking and energy issues since 2009, starting with holding listening projects in the State of New York.

Salon duc Tape, a public forum sponsored by the Northern Colorado Alliance for a Livable Future  (NCALF), usually meets on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month from 7:00 — 9:00 p.m.  This meeting will be held online via Zoom; you will need to register in advance here.   After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information – including a new link – about joining the salon.
