HERO

The Human and Earth Rights Organization is a non-profit student organization at UCSD that is dedicated to educating the public about social and environmental issues. HERO provides opportunities for student involvement in the community and supports human rights and environmental sustainability. HERO believes that only by addressing factors that affect the entire world, rather than considering issues that only pertain to a separate group or nation, can there be a social change drastic enough to end human suffering and stop the destruction of our planet.

HERO Seminars are held on Thursdays at 6:00pm in the Muir Biology Building seminar room 1103. Please be sure to arrive a bit early because the doors for the building automatically are locked at 6pm sharp!
