"Over the past 20 years, misinformation
has become the primary driver of the
polarization of our society and the
greatest risk to our democracy. It has
become a fundamental and effective tool
for political parties for undermining our
values, science, and thoughtful solutions.
A society that can no longer
agree on scientific and historical
facts cannot thrive."
— Tom Ellis, Visionary Circle Member,
