A Career as an Environmental Activist
Professor Robert Francis Kennedy Jr. recalled how his career as an environmental activist started early.

“When I was 8 years old, I wrote my uncle, President Kennedy, a letter asking to meet with him about pollution,” says the longtime Westchester County resident. Invited to the White House, the young activist told his uncle that he wanted to write a book about pollution, and his uncle arranged for him to interview the Secretary of the Interior, Stewart Udall, and Rachel Carson, the author of “Silent Spring,” a book about the effect of rampant pesticide use on the environment.

“I always knew I wanted to do environmental advocacy from when I was little, and I always saw pollution as a form of theft, that people had no right to steal the air or the water, that it was part of the commons,” says Kennedy, who graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law – the alma mater of his father, uncle Edward M. Kennedy, and brothers Max and Michael – in 1979.
