Feeling bombarded with all of the political ads on TV this time of year? Ready to tune out of campaign season? Don't get overwhelmed, get educated.

Join us to learn about the Political TV Ad Archive (powered by Internet Archive), a new and exciting resource that is tracking political TV ads in the presidential primaries this year. Partnering with leading journalism organizations, the Political TV Ad Archive compiles political ads on its website, archives them for future viewing, and checks the facts and follows the money behind each one. The project provides data detailing how often, when, and where each of the ads air on TV, helping you understand exactly what messages candidates are trying to send you and it's all available for download!

So before you burn out on political ads, learn to see them in a new light. You'll learn to use the resource directly from its creators, and hear from leading industry experts to help decode the messages  especially the messages we've been exposed to here in Colorado. Along the way, you may just become a more informed, engaged voter and citizen.

Join us!
