The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA Kent) and Black United Students (BUS) are collaborating to put on Social Movements on Social Media (SMOSM) at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday in room 340 of Franklin Hall.

SMOSM is a discussion panel about social movements—like Black Lives Matter—on social media. The panel will feature a mix of professors, journalists and students who have some connection to social movements on social media.

“PRSSA Kent is really excited to partner with BUS to discuss social movements on social media because it is very important for future (public relations) professionals to understand grassroots movements and how to create them,” said Gabrielle Woodard, president of PRSSA Kent.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be streamed live through PRSSA Kent’s Periscope @prssakent. The discussion can also be followed on twitter using the hashtag #SMOSM.
