The BCHRAC is in immediate need of dedicated individuals from Barnstable County to round out a diverse membership in the Advisory Committee.  Shortly we will be posting a Notice with information on the process to apply.  In the interim, if you are interested in becoming involved with the BC-HRAC, it’s community activities, or if you have ideas or suggestions regarding Human Rights in our County, please contact Deb Battles, Coordinator, at 508-375-6611.

The Public is always welcome to attend Monthly Open Meetings.  Please see our Calendar for Dates or contact our office.
