Our Mission

We advocate for human rights issues and pursue strategic litigation to hold governments accountable at home and around the world. We foster a social good approach to business, celebrate agents of change, and to ensure change that lasts, we educate millions of students about human rights, training the next generation of leaders.

We work with the bravest people on earth—partners at home and around the world—to realize Robert F. Kennedy’s dream of a more just and peaceful world. Working to expose injustice and heal pain and suffering, our pursuit of racial and economic equality forms the foundation of all our programs at RFK Human Rights.

"Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so long ago: 'To tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world.'"

—Robert F. Kennedy
