Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights – Get involved

The Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award seeks to identify and honor people who embody Robert F. Kennedy’s belief in the power of individual moral courage to overcome injustice. Founded in 1968, the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights (RFK Center) has honored 44 human rights defenders working in 26 countries since 1984. The Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award Laureates are individuals who stand up to oppression at grave personal risk in the non-violent pursuit of human rights.

Each year, we invite the public to nominate outstanding champions of human rights who are leading efforts to secure dignity for all people.

Do you know someone who has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to bringing justice and human rights to the people who need them the most, despite serious personal risk or sacrifice? If so, please nominate your own human rights champion for the 2013 Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award.

2013 marks the 30th year anniversary of the Award. Please help us honor Robert F. Kennedy’s legacy of advancing social justice for all by nominating a human rights defender today. We depend on our friends and allies like you to help us find our next partner working for a better, more just world.

The Award recognizes the work of outstanding individuals and provides support for the work of the Laureate through litigation; public awareness campaigns; advocacy to governments, the United Nations, regional bodies, other international entities and non-governmental organizations; and by generating domestic and international support for their cause.

Please note that nominations must be submitted in English. An independent panel, all experts in the field of human rights, selects the recipient based on their dedication and accomplishments toward social justice and the non-violent and effective tactics used to achieve their goals.
