Early last month, Executive Director, Sushma Raman, was appointed as one of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights' newest board members. "Robert Kennedy’s legacy fighting for a more just and peaceful world is inspirational," Sushma writes, "I’m proud to help advance his life’s work as a new board member." Her new role as a board member will assist in providing a strategic vision to RFK Human Rights's greater mission of cultivating a more just and peaceful world. Sushma is one of seven other highly accomplished individuals that joined the board in early January. Other notable names include Maryann Turcke, Chief Operating Officer of the National Football Association (NFL), and Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers.
