They’re also known for their environmental stance, famously performing for activists protesting the dumping of chemicals into Førde Fjord in Norway.

This Week In PR: Girl Power!

Adia Victoria This Week In PR is a column curated by Victor Valle and Jody Amable, celebrating the press releases that caught our eye but we couldn't use. Here are some highlights from our inboxes this week.
