Twenty Shapleigh School students attended a Civil Rights Training Program for 6-8th graders on Thursday October 25 in Portland. The theme of the training was “Identity”. Students completed “identity inventories” to explore how they identify themselves, looked at attitudes towards labels and how they relate to identities and conversations around civil rights issues, and how our identities influence and shape our experiences. Several Shapleigh students participated in an open mic forum in front of 150+ peers from across the state!
