HOUSTON (KTRK) -- World Speech Day was celebrated at the Ismaili Jamatkhana and Center in Sugar Land.
The event is dedicated to celebrating the art of live speaking held at events around the world.
The goal is to be inspired by orators. Local speakers were from Houston debate societies, Fort Bend ISD's school debate clubs, Global Studies Academy, young professionals and community leaders.
