From October 12-16, 2019, Drs. Salinas, Kirk, and Duhé will travel with CCPA Hilltop Scholars to Washington, DC. Students will meet with political communication professionals, such as press secretaries, speechwriters, nonprofit advocates, lobbyists, and political advisors. You will also meet with news and policymakers and experience the Newseum. The purpose of this program is academic, but there will also be some amazing opportunities for you to experience American democracy.
