In keeping with the social justice mission of USF, the festival seeks to make the university a center for the promotion of human rights, as well as a platform to raise consciousness about abuses worldwide.

The issues include: political repression, genocide, disappearances, free speech, censorship, women's rights, environmental destruction, climate change, digital cleaning and corporations’ control of online information, policies abusing economic and social rights, workers’ rights, LGBTQ rights, racism, migrant and farm workers, indigenous rights, migrations, immigration, the prison system, and museums’ colonial plundering.
