In Memory of Gwen Ifill
"We can't expect the world to get better by itself"- Gwen Ifill
The Board and staff of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights mourn the loss of Gwen Ifill-- an honest, insightful and inspiring voice in Journalism.
Through News Hour and Washington Week, Gwen brought lively, thoughtful discussion and analysis of our nation's big stories into homes around the country. A multi award winning media professional, accomplished moderator and a beloved mentor to aspiring journalists, she embraced all that is good and vital about journalism and held us to a higher standard. She reminded us of our responsibility to question, to listen, to be informed and to act.
We are especially proud and grateful that Gwen served as a judge for the Robert F. Kennedy Book and Journalism Awards and we look forward to seeing the work of the young people she inspired and for whom she served as a role model.
