Perceived Threat

As headlines continue to read, “unarmed minority gunned downed,” and “campus fraternity hosts discriminatory party,” or "person beaten because of sexual orientation," these events continue to expose the biases we all have. Perceived Threat opens the conversation to answer internal conflicts such as, “do you see me or do you see your fears?” Perceived Threat is a proactive approach to embracing diversity and improving equality throughout college campuses and their neighboring communities.

Winner of the Gold Cannonball at the Richmond Ad Show, this campaign is being adopted by universities throughout the country.
