Why We Invested
First Draft is working to make journalism and society more resilient against manipulative tactics. They are building a nationwide network of journalists skilled in digital investigations and real-time coordinated defense strategies to mitigate the threat and harm of strategic disinformation.
They accomplish this using a global verification and collaborative investigation network via their CrossCheck International initiative. Their work is further supported by partnering with an expanding community to conduct innovative and experimental research projects, while they continuously develop online and offline training designed to expand and embed best practices in newsrooms and journalism schools around the world.
