Today, the Barnstable County Human Rights Advisory Commission held its Annual Human Rights Awards celebration, and it was a truly inspiring event!

The Rosenthal Community Champion Award was presented to the MLK Action Team Police Task Force of Nauset Interfaith for their dedicated efforts to enhance the relationship between the police and the communities they serve.
The Cornerstone Award was given to Ann Burke in recognition of her outstanding advocacy work in support of transgender individuals on Cape Cod and the Islands.

The Tim McCarthy Award was granted to Ngina Lythcott for her tireless advocacy for children, public health, and racial justice in Provincetown over the past two decades.

The event also recognized Unsung Heroes, including Patricia Cawley, Christine Drew, Natalia Frois, James Matthews, Michael Mecenas, Dan Miville, Chris Morin, Cecilia Phelan-Stiles, Sheril Smith, David Thomas, The Family Pantry of Cape Cod, and Health Ministry Inc., for their remarkable contributions.

It was a day filled with song, inspiration, and evidence that great work is being done in the area of human rights on Cape Cod.

And we had a great time with the Magic Mirror Photo Booth! More photos to come!

Welcome to the Human Rights Advisory Commission

The mission of the Human Rights Advisory Commission is to promote equal opportunity for all persons of Barnstable County regardless of race, color, religious creed, national origin, gender, age, ancestry, sexual or affectional preference marital, family or military status, source of income, neighborhood or disability, where unlawful discrimination exists in housing, employment, education, public accommodations, town or county services, insurance, banking, credit and health care.

After the original Barnstable County Human Rights Commission was established in 2005, the BCHRAC was reconstituted as a nine (9) member, County appointed Commission, pursuant to Barnstable County Ordinance 19-10, dated May 22, 2019, continuing to promotion of the County policies on human rights. Throughout the Commission’s history, it has provided a forum for the public and local organizations and agencies to raise concerns regarding possible human rights violations, as well as work to promote understanding and appreciation of the diverse culture in Barnstable County through education, programming and community action.
