A Celebration of Latino PR History

Join us and the Hispanic Public Relations Association, NYC, for our third annual celebration of LatinoPRHistory, featuring talks by leading PR professionals in the Latino community. This year our focus will be the role of communications in political advocacy, past, present and future — a topic of critical significance for Latino communities today.

Where: 85 Broad Street, 27th floor
When: Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
