Ripple of Hope Award
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 including President Bill Clinton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Bono, George Clooney and Vice President Al Gore 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." See 2011 Ripple of Hope Award Winner Al Gore's acceptance speech below and see photos from the 2011 Ripple of Hope Gala, held on December 5 in Chelsea, New York City!
