Independent Media Programming: Defeating Disinformation, Preventing Misinformation: The United States Embassy in Kosovo announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out projects and initiatives that address the following priority areas: 1.Strengthen and increase the audience share, self-sufficiency, and resilience of Kosovo-based independent media partners that deliver accurate, unbiased information to underserved Kosovan minority communities, (i.e. Romani, Egyptian, Ashkali, Gorani, Bosniak, Turks, Serb, etc.) preferably in their native languages, thereby reducing their audience members' reliance on mis/disinformation meant to undermine U.S. and Euro-Atlantic interests in Kosovo and the Western Balkans. (Note: the term “underserved community” is defined in the Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Underserved Communities End Note). 2.Support for media literacy and critical thinking through programs designed to assist youth from underserved minority communities who are either specifically targeted by disinformation and/or susceptible to misinformation to recognize, analyze, and reject false pervasive narratives that undermine U.S. and Euro-Atlantic interests in Kosovo and the Western Balkans. (Note: it is recommended partners make use of existing Embassy-sponsored resources, including online platforms such as the “Verified Kosovo”, when possible.) 3.Build new partnerships between Kosovo-based independent journalists (representing underserved minority community media) and their youth audiences through engagements with organizations, schools, and universities. The goal of these engagements is to dispel existing disinformation about the role of journalists and increase knowledge about the important role journalists play in democratic societies; thus, encouraging new generations of Kosovan youth representing underserved communities to consider future careers as independent journalists.
