Unlock Our Jobs Coalition

Objective:

Execute a public relations/public affairs campaign to educate the public, media and government leaders about the enormous negative economic impact of closing the Chicago locks and minimize the scare tactics surrounding the perceived threat of Asian carp.

Results:

Our firm successfully executed a campaign to educate the public, media and government leaders about the enormous negative economic impact of closing the locks. Ultimately, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced it had no intention of closing the locks. In December, 2010, Judge Robert M. Dow of the U.S. District Court in Chicago ruled the locks would remain open and operate as usual.
