The second annual Human Rights Symposium will take place from Monday, April 18, 2022 to Friday, April 22, 2022. As we face glaring inequities, we, as a UConn community, must challenge ourselves to explore the structures of oppression around us and the mechanisms to combat them. Over these five days, the Human Rights Symposium invites both the campus community and the public to join us at the University of Connecticut’s Storrs campus for dialogue, education, and awareness about human rights from the local to global sphere. 


The organizers of the 2022 Human Rights Symposium envision a UConn community that centers and celebrates the protection of human rights in both thought and action, one that embraces differences. We hope to impart an education that moves beyond justifications of marginalized existence and onward toward encouraging actionable steps for change. We invite you to join us as we conceive of and construct a more egalitarian future.
