  1. Our words have meaning. Showing empathy, even when we disagree, helps build bridges.
  2. Calling out, or drawing public attention to harmful actions, can be necessary. Think, celebrities spewing misinformation. But when it comes to friends and family, try calling in. Having tough conversations one-on-one can lead to more empathetic and less heated discussions.
  3. Scroll on past that rage-inducing post! When we are angry we’re worse at spotting misinformation. Plus, posts that trigger big negative emotions are more likely to go viral. Take a deep breath and let it gooooo!!☃️❄️
