"If you can teach people to advocate for themselves, they learn to advocate for others."

- Septima Clarke, Former Education Director for Highlander Education & Research Center

The Center for Education, Policy & Advocacy (CEPA) is a student power organization which believes in building grassroots power movements to expand the political consciousness of the campus.
