Michael Kavanagh is the 2009 winner of the RFK international journalism award.
The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award honors those who report on issues that reflect Robert F. Kennedy’s concerns including human rights, social justice and the power of individual action in the United States and around the world.
Led by a committee of six independent journalists, the Awards are judged by more than fifty journalists each year. It has become the largest program of its kind and one of few in which the winners are determined solely by their peers.
In this interview discussing the award, Kavanagh mentions a few great orgs that are working in this area.
Incidentally, several areas of the activist and science blogospheres are working together on this issue as well: Silence is the Enemy is the coalition’s rallying moniker.
Congratulations, Michael. You do great honor to the legacy of one of my heroes.
