Recently lauded by Successful Meetings magazine as a man whose message supersedes his golden name, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. speaks with an earnestness and passion rarely seen among celebrity speakers. His reputation as a resolute defender of the environment stems from a litany of successful legal actions: prosecuting governments and companies for polluting the Hudson River and Long island Sound; winning settlements for the Hudson Riverkeeper; arguing cases to expand citizen access to the shoreline; and suing sewage treatment plants to force compliance with the Clean Water Act. But Kennedy's message is more than clean water and pristine rivers. It is a call to action for people to make a contribution and a difference in their world. In his inspiring and brilliantly delivered speech, he tells of time spent with this father on the Hudson River, recalls Native American folklore, and invokes a pride in America's physical landscape that leaves audiences breathless. Book signing, The Riverkeepers, will follow the lecture.

Mr. Kennedy serves as chief prosecuting attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper, senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council, all while serving as the President of the Waterkeeper Alliance. He is also a clinical professor and supervising attorney at the Environmental Litigation Clinic at Pace University School of Law in New York.
