Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were recently named the 2022 Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope Award laureates in recognition of their work on racial justice, mental health, and other social impact initiatives through The Archewell Foundation.
“When The Duke and Duchess accepted our award laureate invitation back in March, we were thrilled. The couple has always stood out for their willingness to speak up and change the narrative on racial justice and mental health around the world,” said Kerry Kennedy, president of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights. “They embody the type of moral courage that my father once called the ‘one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.’”
Previous winners of the Ripple of Hope Award include Stacey Abrams, then-Vice President Joe Biden, Bono, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, George Clooney, Tim Cook, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Amanda Gorman, Vice President Kamala Harris, Dolores Huerta, Colin Kaepernick, late Congressman John Lewis, former President Barack Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Desmond Tutu.
