Create a Culture of Kindness!

There’s a long history of solidarity and reciprocity between Matenwa, Haiti and the Lower Cape.

On Sunday, October 22, Isabel Pelligrini, President of the Nauset Human Rights Academy, will tell us about one of the newest iterations of that relationship as she recounts her experience visiting Haiti last spring.

The Human Rights Academy is a project of the Barnstable County Human Rights Commission intended to promote human rights education and civic engagement among students enrolled in the region’s high and middle schools. Nauset Regional High School is a regular participant on the county-wide academy and has fully integrated the Human Rights Academy into its year round offerings.
