Human Rights Front and Center

In their final weeks of the fall semester, Student Task Force members hosted a range of events and activities honoring Human Rights Day. Despite busy schedules and final exam preparations, students kept human rights front and center in their last days of school before winter break. From in-chapter conversations and quiz games to school-wide surveys and poster displays, STFers once again demonstrated their commitment to human rights advocacy.

Check out some of their events:
