International Fact-Checking Day

April 2 marks International Fact-Checking Day, a global initiative that recognizes the crucial role of accurate information in an interconnected world. As we celebrate this day, we recognize the vital work of fact-checkers worldwide who dedicate their efforts to upholding facts. At the International Fact-Checking Network, we believe that elevating facts is not solely the responsibility of professionals, but rather a collective effort involving public participation and all sectors of society. By elevating fact-checking and promoting credible sources, we can foster a healthy information ecosystem where facts prevail. Join us in recognizing that #FactsMatter in building a more informed and resilient society, on #FactcheckingDay and every day.

The first International Fact-Checking Day was launched by the IFCN in 2016 to celebrate and highlight the important work of fact-checkers worldwide. Weֱve celebrated it every year since.

Make sure to follow @factchecknet, and #factcheckingday on Twitter to take part in the global conversation every April 2.
