Kerry Kennedy & R.F. Kennedy Center for Human Rights
Kerry Kennedy has led more than forty human rights delegations to more than thirty countries over the course of two decades.
Kerry established the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Human Rights in 1987 to ensure the protection of rights codified under the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.
She has worked on diverse issues such as child labor, disappearances, indigenous land rights, judicial independence, freedom of expression, ethnic violence, the environment, and women's rights.
Her book, Speak Truth to Power, spawned a play by Broadway playwright Ariel Dorfman, a photo exhibit by Pulitzer Prize winner Eddie Adams, an award-winning website, an education packet, a series of Public Service Announcements and a documentary broadcast on PBS.
Kerry serves as Chair of the Amnesty International Leadership Council and serves on boards or advisory committees of Human Rights First, The Bloody Sunday Trust, the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial, the Gleitsman Foundation, The China Information Center, the Committee on the Administration of Justice (Northern Ireland), and the International Campaign for Tibet, among others.

Established by family and friends over three decades ago, the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial, based in Washington, DC, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that furthers RFK’s vision by advancing respect for human rights and fighting for social justice around the world.
