The Vital Role of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Leadership Council

Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights continues Bobby Kennedy’s legacy of partnering with brave women and men on the front lines of the fight for justice. From lawsuits to lesson plans, our programs are designed to empower activists around the world who are creating change from the ground up.

The members of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Leadership Council appreciate the importance of philanthropy and advocacy in the fight for equal justice. These advocates are a dedicated and diverse group of local and global leaders, entrepreneurs, activists, and artists—including Ethel Kennedy, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, President Bill Clinton, Rosie Perez, and Keegan-Michael Key—who champion our work by providing critical financial and social support to help us tackle the world’s most daunting human rights challenges. 

Together, we are working to create a more just and peaceful world.
