    Black Art Matters

    Austin Justice Coalition's annual art show and fundraiser highlights criminal justice, social justice, and the Black Lives Matter movement through artists of color. This space will be dedicated to the exploration of how artists of color share their uniqueness with the world and how social justice work can aid them in their journey. There's a silent auction where each artist will donate one art piece, with proceeds going toward Austin Justice Coalition and its continued work to help and support the people of Austin, and all artists will keep their personal sales to encourage economic support of local Black artists.
    Sat., Feb. 22, 7-10pm. $20 suggested donation.

    How to Spot Disinformation

    As elections approach, we'll be bombarded with email, tweets, articles, editorials, opinions in print media, social media, and elsewhere. How do we tell fact from fiction? This meeting will cover how to identify disinformation, how to share responsibly on social media, how to tell when a bot or foreign agent is the source of information, and understanding what attracts people to "alternative facts." Panelists include UT School of Journalism professor Dr. Sharon Strover and Jessica Collier of the UT Center for Media Engagement.
    Sat., Feb. 22, 2-4pm. Free.
