ASK: is there any way to pressure social media sites (e.g. Facebook) to be more socially responsible about what they permit on their site.
Anne Markward
49:51
Can you speak to the disinformation about Mark Udall back when, led by outside actors? One of the first examples of this.
marilyn hughes

Ian what did you think of the crazy flyer that Dave Williams was making a big deal about the “horror” of it.

ASK: How do we fight disinformation about ballot initiatives and petitions?
Deana Kamm
01:02:42
Curious if you know which group is texting Democratic voters stating "Hickenlooper Scandals Make him unelectable"? (supposedly from @progressiveCOnow) (see image on Trish's post: https://www.facebook.com/TrishZornio2020/photos/a.390766647989472/1125857244480405/?type=3&theater)
marilyn hughes
01:03:28
So was Dave Williams being used or did he do it on purpose as El Paso County Trump Chairman?
Deana Kamm
01:03:48
Most of us think Williams made it up himself as he's always seeking attention
Ian Silverii (he/him/his)
01:04:31
No way to tell definitively, it seems to be parody and while vile and horrific and containing disgusting slurs, likely beyond the satirical powers of Rep. Williams.
Ian Silverii (he/him/his)
01:05:39
It was signed “Colorado Education Association, Colorado Sheriffs, Antifa Colorado” which is beyond preposterous and, again, beyond Rep. Williams’s sense of irony.
Pua Aki
01:06:44
Another "Willie Horton"!
Jody Rein
01:07:00
yes Pua Aki!
Deana Kamm
01:07:02
That's true, but Williams was the first to post it. His wife is very manipulative (check out her facebook page Call to Action)
Ian Silverii (he/him/his)
01:07:23
Will do, thank you Deana
Deana Kamm
01:08:23

That's one way how they suck people into sharing this stuff, isn
Pua Aki
01:11:38
How they get people to share this stuff, isn't it? The more outrageous, the more people share it!
Ian Silverii (he/him/his)
01:11:44
True!
Elaine Brush
01:12:43
Who is producing EPOCH TIMES???
Pua Aki
01:13:04
Yeah, I had questions about them, too.
Ian Silverii (he/him/his)
01:13:52
It’s actually wild, it’s an extension of Falun Gong, a religious organization from China

I got it.
Kathy Wilson
01:19:48
I got the text. 1(720)279-0822 is the phone number that showed up.
Madeleine Jacobs MD
01:20:43
Thank you Ian. Very useful!
Pua Aki
01:20:55
Yay & thanks!
Anne Markward
01:21:36
what twitter handles will messages be coming from?
Elaine Brush
01:22:06
Wow! Sure has been informative!!
Caitlin Hungate
01:22:40
Can these actions be built into our call to actions in the Colorado Progressive Leaders group where we cull call to actions?
Madeleine Jacobs MD
01:22:46
Excellent event tonight--giving me things to do! Thanks
marilyn hughes
01:23:11
Excellent information even though it all is pretty scary. I feel much more prepared to fight against dis/mis information.
Deana Kamm
01:24:12
aweseome thanks Erik, supposedly Williams lost his Trump post today :) YAY!!!
Nan Shannon
01:24:15
Thank you for the difficult work you do, Eric.
Pua Aki
01:27:24
ASK: Will there be anymore trainings so we can tell trusted friends, etc. about this--it's also about training people how to tell disinfo out there and not get taken in by it.
Madeleine Jacobs MD
01:27:36
Didn't know about it. Will start!
Linda Champ
01:27:48
I'll read it now! Thanks Erik
Pua Aki
01:31:05
I'm only typing in chat. My computer doesn't have mic or camera.

01:42:02
Yay!
Madeleine Jacobs MD
01:44:42
Do you guys know about Vote Forward?
Caitlin Hungate
01:44:58
Yes, we write directly for the campaigns.
Pua Aki
01:45:28
ASK: So how will we be contacted by the CO Truth Brigade?
Caitlin Hungate
01:45:57
Campaigns supply the postcards and script. We write for them and they can use the postcards to compliment their GOTV strategies. Campaigns provide labels and postage. So different than Vote Forward, Postcards to Voters, etc.
Caitlin Hungate
01:48:09
And we air on the side of caution. The beauty is there is plenty to do :)
Barbara Niederhoff
01:50:07
thank you all!! gonna hop off

I do have relatives in police and law enforcement, so talking to them would be difficult. I don't know if it's so much "defund the police" as "remake the police." One thing my husband and I agree on is demilitarizing the police. Take all the military equipment and that kind of stuff away.
Jody Rein
02:00:53
Absolutely Pua! The language certainly grabs attention--we need to get beyond the slogan and let that go and focus on what we want to accomplish
Jody Rein
02:01:30
People tried "reform" the police but it's just not far enough.
Jody Rein
02:02:01
what people forget is that we pay police salaries
