Taylor Swift will be honored by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights Center with the Ripple of Hope award on Dec. 3. The black tie event, hosted by Alec Baldwin, will be held in New York and will recognize Swift for her commitment to social change.
“Taylor Swift’s dedication to advocacy at such a young age continues to inspire me, and I’m delighted to honor her as one of our 2012 Ripple of Hope Award recipients,” said the center’s president Kerry Kennedy, daughter of the late Robert Kennedy.
Kennedy noted Swift’s support for arts education, disaster-stricken communities, and her fight against bullying and LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) discrimination.
Past award honorees include President Bill Clinton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Bono, George Clooney and Vice President Al Gore.
