RFK Partners for Human Rights

The RFK Center’s human rights advocacy programs focus on the power of the individual, working through alliances and organizations to generate change.

The only international human rights program of its kind, RFK Partners for Human Rights forges multi-year partnerships with recipients of the annual Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award. Grounded in listening to and serving the real needs of the Laureates, RFK Partners' unique model is one of the most effective ways to advance long-term, systemic change for communities across the globe. Since 1984, the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights has worked with 45 Laureates from 27 countries.
