Mission Statement

To redeem the millions forced to swallow their voices, and to assure new generations know the gift of hope, Robert Kennedy's vision of social justice lives on today through the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial.

Description

Since its inception in 1968, The Robert F. Kennedy Memorial has aimed to fulfill the legacy of Robert Kennedy through promoting the full spectrum of human rights within the United States and throughout the world.

In order to reflect the global nature of RFK's work, the Memorial established the annual Human Rights Award in 1984 to honor individuals who, at great risk, stand up to oppression in the nonviolent pursuit of social justice.

Led by the Kennedy family, a staff of expert human rights activists and a strong network of volunteers, the Memorial develops and implements projects which enhance and complement the social change agendas of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award Laureates and Social Justice Fellows.

Today the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit charitable organization that works to realize his dream of a peaceful and just world through domestic and international programs that help the disadvantaged and oppressed, build our next generation of leaders, and tackle the toughest problems facing our society.
