"It is evident why Juan Gonzales is an award-winning journalist. His key note presentation on the causes of migration from Central America to the U.S was superb! His knowledge of the historical, current, and contextual factors was comprehensive, in-depth, and eye-opening! His talk was a very clear, captivating, and engaging. Mr. Gonzalez provided a perspective that is often not told, but critical to understanding, analyzing, and finding solutions to a very complex global crisis.
Drew Sullivan and his team at APB were amazing to work with in organizing the event that featured Mr. Gonzalez. From our initial conversation and throughout the entire process, communication was clear, timely, professional, and productive. I would highly recommend both Mr. Gonzalez as a presenter and APB for future events."
"Juan Gonzalez was terrific. He was very personable and friendly. He connected well with both students and faculty. He touched on relevant and pressing social issues. The history of race in the media was the primary topic, but he answered a lot of the students’ questions on a range of issues such as the current political campaign, the Puerto Rican debt crisis, the CIA's involvement in destabilizing overthrowing democratically elected governments in Central and Latin American, the Black Lives Matter movement, etc. Juan also stayed a little longer than his planned schedule. We are grateful for his time with us."
