ISU Hosts Human Rights Day

Terre Haute, IN. - Tuesday was the 17th Annual Human Rights day in Terre Haute, and students from around the Valley got a lesson in what their rights are.

The annual event was hosted by ISU on campus.

High school and college students, as well as faculty, were welcome to attend the event, that encouraged them to come together and talk about the world they want to live in. 

Break out sessions gave students different perspectives on issue like social class, human trafficking, immigration and LGBTQ rights. 

"You can't have a public space that's not addressing human rights," Ise Lyfe said. "I think it's a major thing. I mean we see in a dominant culture we have to address social justice in every aspect of our lives. What I'm excited about is that us talking about it on a larger platform turns into the actual work being done."

More than four-hundred folks attended the event, one of their biggest turnouts to date.
