The Upper School Social Action assembly today focused on Human Rights. We welcomed Maeve McKean, Executive Director of the Georgetown University Global Health Initiative. Ms. McKean is a public health and human rights lawyer and her work focuses on the intersection of global health and human rights. Ms. McKean's mother is Stone Ridge graduate, and former Lt. Governor of Maryland, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend '69. We were honored to have Ms. McKean speak on her experience working with human rights initiatives worldwide.
Katie White, Director of Social Action said, "Ms. McKean helped our students make connections between unjust systems and standards of care and access. McKean has been a Peace Corps volunteer and studied human rights issues all over the world, yet she insisted that we do not have to go far to do good work. She encouraged the audience to investigate the ways in which the U.S. could become more equitable for all, echoing the sentiment of Sr. Barbara Dawson, RSCJ who encouraged the Stone Ridge community to start right here with acts of service and community building." #Goal3
