Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to advancing human rights. This living memorial, founded in 1968, works to realize Robert Kennedy’s dream of a peaceful and just world.
RFK Children’s Action Corps and the RFK Center launched the RFK Juvenile Justice Collaborative in August 2009 to bring national attention to key juvenile justice issues.
The Collaborative consists of board members from each organization and focuses on national policy and advocacy work, prioritizing issues impacting the reentry of juvenile justice-involved youth back into their communities after a time of confinement or out-of-home placement.
The Collaborative’s goal is to combine the national policy and advocacy expertise of the RFK Center and the practical, service-delivery experience of RFK Children’s Action Corps to enhance the impact of educational and profile-raising activities that seek to increase national attention on juvenile justice issues.
