Sewanhaka Students Present at Human Rights Conference

Sewanhaka students presented a workshop at the Human Rights Commission of Nassau County's annual youth conference on Feb. 2.

Students in the school’s SPICE club and Family, Career and Community Leaders of America encouraged participants to become involved in community awareness. They educated more than 60 Nassau County teens on several human rights violations that have occurred in the region during the last few months including incidents of bias crimes and human trafficking.

A special thanks to SPICE advisor Michelle Papaccio and FCCLA co-advisor Paula Curci, who spearheaded the program.
