Golfing for Human Rights
On October 17, Sadhguru teed off at Hyannisport Club, Massachusetts at the 25th Annual Golf Tournament of Robert F. Kennedy’s Center for Justice and Human Rights.
The tournament raises more than $600,000 to support the human rights work around the globe, and attracts golfers from across the United States.
More than 150 guests joined the tournament, including actors Bill Murray and Dennis Haysbert; legendary Boston Celtics Bill Russell and John Havlicek; gold medal decathlete Rafer Johnson; Congressman Steny Hoyer; and comedian Rob Riggle, among others.
The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights was founded in 1968 by Robert Kennedy's family and friends as a living memorial to carry forward his vision of a more just and peaceful world.
The Center’s core programs focus on the power of the individual, working through alliances and organizations, to generate change. It bolsters the efficacy of human rights defenders through sustained, strategic partnerships, extending their reach to legislators, diplomats, international institutions, and corporations. In addition, the Center educates students and the public about human rights issues and provides the tools for creating change in their communities.
