Recent sharp declines in trust in the government and other institutions will be discussed 7 p.m. CT Monday, July 9 at Lifetree Café.

The program—titled “In the News: Who Can You Trust?”—features a filmed interview with a retired FBI special agent, who discusses what it was like to work for an organization people are quick to question.

“In a time where fake news is common, and scandals are commonly staining the reputation of institutions, it’s hard to know who or what to trust,” said Lifetree Café national director Craig Cable “This program is dedicated to exploring why people do or don’t trust institutions anymore.”

During the program, participants will have an opportunity to share their opinions about who is trustworthy in today’s society.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
