Robert F. Kennedy Children's Action Corp with Charles Shaughnessy Advisory Board Member
“Justice, dignity, equality – these are words which are often used loosely, with little appreciation of their meaning. I think that their meaning can be distilled into one goal: that every child in this country live as we would want our own children to live.” Robert F. Kennedy
