Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights was founded in 1968, by Bobby Kennedy's family and friends to advance the Senator's unfinished work on racial, economic and social justice. Now led by human rights lawyer and activist Kerry Kennedy, our team of attorneys, issue experts, advocates, entrepreneurs, and writers are united by a commitment to realize Robert Kennedy's dream of a more just and peaceful world. We advocate for key human rights issues, pursuing strategic litigation to hold governments accountable at home and around the world. We champion the changemakers who inspire human rights defenders everywhere. We engage businesses, working to help them align with human rights norms. And to ensure change that lasts, we engage university students in advocacy and organizing and educate millions of students about human rights, training the next generation of leaders.
