Human Rights in the Everyday: Talk with Humanities Iowa Speaker Debra DeLaet

Thursday, April 14, 2016 -
6:00pm to 7:30pm

In conjunction with “THEM: Images of Separation,” the Old Capitol Museum will host Humanities Iowa Speaker and Drake University political science professor Debra DeLaet as she explores how the contestation over human rights takes place in our everyday lives—in our families, our workplaces, and our civic spaces—and how we can move beyond merely voting to promote and protect those rights.

A special performance by the local choral group Family Folk Machine, a multi-generational non-auditioned group that encourages adults of all ages and backgrounds to build a community and explore history with music, will start the evening with a selection of pieces focused on social-justice and activism. 

This program has been funded by Humanities Iowa.
