Join Us in Creating Change
Led by human rights lawyer and activist Kerry Kennedy, our team of attorneys, issue experts, advocates, entrepreneurs, and writers is united by a commitment to realize Robert Kennedy’s dream of a more just and peaceful world.
A nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights has worked to achieve equal rights for all since 1968. We advocate for key human rights issues and pursue strategic litigation to hold governments accountable at home and around the world. We champion the changemakers who inspire human rights defenders everywhere. Engaging with businesses to reinforce human rights norms, we foster a social-good approach to investment. And to ensure change that lasts, we educate millions of students about advocacy and human rights, training the next generation of leaders.
