About our #FocusImmigration Thunderclap

Students and faculty at Montclair State’s School of Communication and Media wanted to do a collaborative project that would harness all the cross-platform talents housed in our building. The students chose to examine the topic of immigration and we united all our content around one hashtag: #FocusImmigration.

To get our work noticed in a world awash with content, we orchestrated a Thunderclap: unleashing all our stories simultaneously across platforms on one day so that we could be heard, read, watched – and have an impact. It worked. Read about it here. Check out the stories featured above, and click the icons to see more of the work students produced.
