This conference is made possible in part by the support of The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

John S. and James L. Knight believed a well-informed community could best determine its own true interests and was essential to an effective democracy. Today, the foundation bearing their names is a leading investor in the field of research emerging around questions of information integrity, media, and democratic citizenship in the digital age. To date, Knight has committed more than $60 million to support this field through an expansive consortium of academic researchers and policy experts known as the Knight Research Network.
