STF Unites for Human Rights

March 3, 2017: As part of their Know Your Rights, Protect Our Rights campaign, STF chapters are hosting “Unity Day” events to demonstrate their solidarity for human rights. Inspired by the successful Women’s March in January, STFers hosted die-ins, human chains and art exhibits to call on their campus communities to stand up for human rights in the United States, especially for the protection of LGBT, immigration and women’s rights.
