Food For Thought: Spinning at the Border: Employee Activism/Representation in "Big PR"

Your Speaker: Trinity Associate Professor Camille Reyes, Ph.D.; Andrea Acevedo '18

What happens when the glossy sheen of advertising and public relations encounters less than shimmering realities? The Mexico/US border is one such site of contestation for the persuasion industries as they handle controversial client-work related to immigration. Learn how different agencies have responded to pressure by resigning from such work within their own ranks. Experience a virtual-reality representation of an immigration detention cell. Comments and questions will be welcomed in this thought-provoking event.
