The son of Senator Robert F. Kennedy and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Jr is a lifelong Democrat and proven champion of the American people.
Since 1985, Kennedy has been one of the most successful environmental lawyers in the United States, earning global recognition including TIME Magazine’s “Hero of the Planet” and the Sartisky Peace Award.
Although he criticizes the prevailing political establishment for its abandonment of core Democratic values like peace and the First Amendment, Bobby Kennedy has long been an active supporter of Democratic candidates and leaders, endorsing and campaigning for Al Gore, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Bobby was also an early and vocal critic of President George Bush’s decision to invade Iraq and the US enhanced interrogation program at Guantanamo Bay and around the world.
Bobby has been a devoted supporter of union rights, going on hunger strike with United Farm Workers and serving as a pall-bearer during the funeral of Cesar Chavez. Bobby has consistently argued that those who work hard in the United States should be able to afford a good life.
