TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – People gathered at Indiana State University Tuesday to celebrate human rights and learn how they can make a difference in the world.
The university hosted Terre Haute’s annual Human Rights Day event, which offered workshops on various issues related to human rights.
Topics ranged from injustices in the history of Vigo County to human trafficking.
“Discrimination and injustice to people all over the world continues to occur and we hope to further that ethical and moral being of young people to give back to their community, and help when they can,” says Linda Lambert with the event’s steering committee.
This was ISU’s 19th year hosting the event.
David Estrin, the grandson of four Holocaust survivors, was this year’s keynote speaker.
