Human Rights Day
The annual Terre Haute Human Rights Day is a day-long event. Each year a keynote speaker is featured along with several other speakers, interactive workshops, and a variety of other activities. While centered on the Indiana State University campus, the programming represents the work of many individuals from both ISU and the Terre Haute community, and will involve both public school and university students.
Human Rights Day will take place on March 3, 2020 in the Hulman Memorial Student Union from 9am-3pm.
