PR Student Makes Reader's "Best of Chicago 2014" List

The Chicago Reader named Public Relations major Rachael Perrotta the city's "Best Anti-Establishment Mouthpiece" in 2014, acknowledging her important work as a publicist for Occupy Chicago.  The Reader applauded Rachael's ability to act as a bridge between the activists with whom she worked and the news media outlets.  Prior to her arrival, Occupy Chicago had been wary of interacting with the media and did not generate any press releases or talking points.  Rachael changed Occupy's approach and, in her first six months on the job, she and her PR team generated hundreds of stories that brought media attention to the movement's antiwar and antiglobalization message.
