March of the Toreros and Changemaker Festival
Maher Hall to Institute for Peace and Justice
March of the Toreros shows our solidarity and commitment to diversity and inclusion issues at USD. The march leads to the USD Changemaker Festival where different campus organizations that are involved in the creation and promotion of peace and justice will be showcased. Various tables will focus on the ways in which they cultivate peace and justice in their community.
One of the tables will be dedicated specifically to events that pertain to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama's visit to San Diego, along with background information on His Holiness.
