On the Ground

Pitt Disinformation Lab works with community organizations to co-create research, drive new learning, and serve our communities in understanding information ecosystems and building resilience to disinformation across Western Pennsylvania. 

Community Partner Spotlight – Homewood Children’s Village 

Thanks to the support of Pitt’s Year of Data and Society, PDL partnered with the Homewood Children’s Village Citizen’s Leadership Institute to explore and develop a community-centered understanding of information flows, perception, influence and debate—and resilience—to mis- and disinformation. At the end of our three months together, citizen leaders created an asset map of information flows in their communities.
