Danielle Brown Leads LIFT Project

Assistant Professor Danielle Brown leads the LIFT project, which seeks to mitigate the harm of dishonest, misinformed, and incomplete narratives amplified by the news media by circumventing systems through trusted messengers in Black communities. This solutions-based project currently centers on the perspectives, experiences, and dynamics of Black communities. A public report of the findings from research in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area will be released in April 2023.
