Embrace Diversity

A collection of resources promoted by BUPRSSA members with the goal of promoting inclusivity and acceptance for all.

BUPRSSA is an established community for the professional development of all public relations students. One of our main goals for this year is to promote and raise awareness for diversity and inclusion.

 

At BUPRSSA, we want everyone to know and feel that our organization is a diverse place where every individual is treated equally and welcomed regardless of race, religion, sexuality, gender, or gender.

 

We further strive to embody diversity by sharing weekly resources on our website and social media accounts. Our Fall 2020 Executive Board is happy to present our DEI (Diversity and Inclusion) page, where we will be sharing diverse resources with our reflections.

 

Many of us come across various resources, but don’t know where to start from. And we hope to be your guide through it all.

 

We appreciate any feedback or recommendation you give. If you would like to reach out or work with us on raising more awareness of diversity and inclusion, please contact us at blog@buprssa.com.

We are excited to hear from you!

The Hate U Give (2018) 

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds -- the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what's right.

Initial release: October 19, 2018 (Nigeria)

DirectorGeorge Tillman Jr.

"I appreciate that this movie explained the complexity of black girlhood through the eyes of the protagonist Starr Carter. This movie offered a different perspective on the topic of blackness and police brutality. " - Arielle Warren (COM'21)
