On May 21, the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights hosted the 2015 RFK Book and Journalism Award at the Newseum. Laogai Research Foundation's executive director Harry Wu, along with other three hundred guests, attended the event.
The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards, founded by the reporters who covered the 1968 presidential campaign, recognize outstanding reporting on issues that reflect Robert Kennedy's dedication to human rights and social justice, and his belief in the power of individual action. Winning entries provide insights into the causes, conditions, and remedies of human rights violations and injustice, and critical analyses of the movements that foster positive global change.
The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards were judged by sixty media professionals who volunteer their time in the peer review. The Grand Prize, which will be announced at the ceremony, is chosen from the winners in each category by the Awards Committee, which is chaired by Margaret Engel, author, reporter, and Director of the Alicia Patterson Foundation.
