CWA Athenaeum Series to Host The Yes Men and PBS Correspondent Maria Hinojosa

Sociopolitical satirists Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno of The Yes Men raise awareness of public issues through large scale hoaxes which often include impersonation of corporate and government representatives. They have produced two films documenting their work: The Yes Men and The Yes Men Fix the World, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Hinojosa is the host of the PBS series Maria Hinojosa:One-on-One and the weekly NPR series Latino USA. She has received numerous honors and awards, including the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and was named one of the 100 Most Influential Hispanics by Hispanic Business Magazine.
