Join us for our annual Embracing the Legacy event on May 11, 2021 to celebrate the critical work we do, as well as honor individuals who exemplify the commitment and courage of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy.  Since we are gathering virtually this year, it's never been easier to attend!

This year tested the children and families we support like no other. Youth already facing challenges associated with poverty, racism, trauma, mental health, and learning differences faced the de-stabilizing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. And yet, across our programs, young people, along with the staff providing treatment and support, confronted these challenges with courage, and extremely hard work.

We are proud to be presenting the 2021 Embracing the Legacy awards to these remarkable individuals:

Jim Geraghty, Managing Director, Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management

Robert F. Kennedy Children's Action Corps serves children who are already facing life’s toughest challenges. This year has tested their limits even more. And it’s tested the organization too. Responding to the needs of the children we work with during this global pandemic has come with considerable hard work and perseverance.  We are committed  giving the children we serve the full set of supports necessary to help them build connected, capable, and healthy lives. From going the extra mile within current programs, to building new and innovative support systems, RFK Children’s Action Corps believes in investing in children.

When you attend Embracing the Legacy, you are supporting children who need you to invest in their extraordinary futures. 

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
