On Wednesday, Cape Cod Academy hosted the Annual Barnstable County Human Rights Academy. Students in grades 7-12 from eight local schools were in attendance, including CCA students.
This event brings together like-minded peers who are trying to make a positive difference in their communities. In 2016, CCA became the new home of The Human Rights Academy, a county-wide force for educating and mobilizing student activists. Nearly 100 students from member schools across the Cape meet twice each year to discuss the challenges of citizenship and how young people can make a positive impact on their schools and communities.
Dr. Kate Epperly, Vice Chair of the Barnstable County Human Rights Advisory Commission, spoke to the students, along with CCA faculty and event organizer, Keith Lewison. CCA student, Jack McCoy '20, introduced the formation of a local group, Sunrise Movement, an organization for Global Change
