Robert F. Kennedy boldly faced tough problems and challenged the comfortable and complacent. To realize his dream of a more just and peaceful world, his family and friends founded a living memorial in 1968. Today the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights is dedicated to advancing human rights. Through long-term partnerships and cutting edge methods, we assist advocates who have won the RFK Human Rights Award. We support investigative journalists and authors who bring light to injustice through the RFK Book and Journalism Awards. Our Speak Truth to Power program educates the public and provides students with a toolkit for action to create change in the classroom, the community, nationally and internationally.
In addition, as part of a continuing program of fi duciary education, the RFK Compass Program works with institutional investors to advance a discussion of the connections among investment performance, fi duciary duty and public interest issues to optimize risk-adjusted rates of returns and address current and future global challenges.
