CHD founder and chairman on leave honored for his dedication to children’s health, restoring medical freedom and preserving democracy
Washington, D.C. – Children’s Health Defense (CHD) presented Robert F. Kennedy Jr. with the Defender Award at CHD’s 2nd Annual Conference on Nov. 3 in Savannah, GA. Kennedy, chairman on leave for the organization he founded in 2016, was recognized for championing critical efforts to shed light on escalating but overlooked threats to children’s health and for questioning the narratives of government agencies, public health officials, and powerful industries, including pharmaceutical companies.
“Mr. Kennedy is an unstoppable force,” said CHD Executive Vice President Laura Bono. “He directs his life every single day with complete intention on tackling problems that seem unwinnable and too big for others to take on.”
Under Kennedy’s leadership, CHD has grown exponentially since its launch. Some accomplishments include:
- The launch of CHD’s online news and views site, The Defender, which publishes relevant information regarding Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Energy, Big Food, Big Chemical and the corruption within these industries. The Defender is now available in six languages.
- The publication of Kennedy’s book, “The Real Anthony Fauci,” topped all the best seller lists and sold over 1 million copies. After two years, it’s still in Amazon’s top 10 electronic books.
