Obama called Kennedy his hero.
Former US President Barack Obama became the laureate of the award named after Robert F. Kennedy in the protection of human rights.
“Bobby Kennedy was one of my heroes. I first went to public service because I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself, believing that my own salvation was connected with the salvation of others,” are available on the website of the award Obama’s words.
The award organization also received the head of the channel Discovery David Zaslav, CEO of health insurance Humana Bruce Broussard and the Governor of the state of new Jersey Phil Murphy.
