The Human Rights Academy is an opportunity for Cape Cod schools to reflect on the work students have done in support of human rights. This event takes place each spring and allows for student reflection and growth before leaving for summer vacation.
Due to COVID-19, HRA has transitioned to virtual platforms until it is safe to resume in-person gatherings. The Spring 2021 event will take place on Wednesday, May 5th from 12:45 PM – 2:15 PM via Google Meet.
Please encourage any and all eligible students to apply for the Annual Malcolm McDowell Award. Additional details and application information is attached below.
