Human Rights Awareness Day 2019

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

12:30 - 6:30 p.m.


“Youth Activism”


Manhattanville College’s Castle Scholars will be hosting their Annual Human Rights Awareness Day on November 13, 2019. This year's theme is “Youth Activism”.


The HRAD event is run by students who are part of the Castle Scholars Honors Program at Manhattanville College. The honors students sign up for a fall semester Service Class in which they work as a team to plan and successfully manage an event that lasts the entire day. The students begin to work on the event early during the semester in order to ensure its success on that day.


Join Manhattanville’s Castle Scholars for the 13th Annual Human Rights Awareness Day on November 13, 2019 from 12:30-6:30p.m.


We hope to see you there!
