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 Right Day 2017

2017 Human Rights Day was a success with Terre Haute North, Terre Haute South, and Rockville High Schools’ students attending alongside ISU students. Topics provided strong conversation and opportunities for reflections that consisted of human rights in Honduras, women in our political movement, Dakota Pipeline, voices of Syria, how to be a LGBTQIA ally in the community, human rights post-election, dangers of sexting, and myths and facts about raising the minimum wage just to name a few. Thank you again to the Wabash Valley and Indiana State University for supporting this diverse and forward thinking event.
