The RFK Center amplifies the work of activists, authors, journalists, and students to a global audience through four annual awards.
THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD recognizes an individual who stands up to oppression at grave personal risk in the nonviolent pursuit of human rights. RFK Human Rights Award Laureates, imbued with moral courage, are the Martin Luther Kings of their countries, championing widespread and meaningful change.
THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY BOOK AWARD honors the book that most forcefully reflects Robert Kennedy’s priorities: concern for the poor and the powerless, the struggle for even-handed justice, and a remedy for disparities of power and opportunity.
JOURNALISM AWARDS celebrate excellence in investigative journalism in the United States and in Italy.
THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY RIPPLE OF HOPE AWARD lauds leaders of the international business, entertainment and activist communities who demonstrate commitment to social change. Honorees reflect Robert Kennedy’s passion for equality, justice, basic human rights and his belief that we all must strive to “make gentle the life of this world.”
