12 Hours To Make The News

To maximize the impact of our client’s push to remove police from schools on Chicago’s South and West Sides, Thinkinc. recommended a strategic joint press conference with Ald. Roderick Sawyer and other allies of our client.

Thinkinc. developed strategic messaging, pitched reporters and alerted the media to the urgency of the moment, as Ald. Sawyer prepared to put forth a measure before the City Council.

In 12 hours, Thinkinc.’s deep and broad relationship with Chicago and regional media produced a well-attended news conference and several big media hits.
