Twenty years ago, an unfulfilled corporate lawyer with a remarkable personal history sat up in bed and realized what he wanted to do with his life.
That lawyer was Robert Meeropol and the organization that he immediately got to work building was the Rosenberg Fund for Children (RFC).
The RFC provides the shelter of a supportive community for children whose parents are working for social justice, and - as a direct result - have lost their livelihood, their liberty, their physical or emotional well-being or even their lives in the course of that work.
We have awarded millions of dollars to benefit hundreds of children in the U.S. whose parents have been targeted because of their involvement in dozens of progressive movements including the struggles to wage peace; preserve civil liberties; safeguard the environment; and organize on behalf of workers, prisoners and others whose human rights are under threat.
There are many ways you can help us celebrate 20 years of supporting the children of targeted activists, and also help ensure that the RFC will continue to provide a community of support for future generations.
