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

Your Speaker: Trinity Associate Professor Camille Reyes, Ph.D. and 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.
