Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps and The Doctor Franklin Perkins School are now RFK Community Alliance
We are the same organization, people, and programs you have known – just with a different name and look. Our new name carries forward the work and life of Robert F. Kennedy, a legacy defined by his commitment to serving people who are vulnerable. It also highlights that everything we do is in alliance with people and community. Our new logo modernizes Perkins’ blossom flower logo. Together, the new branding represents the rich histories of these two organizations, as well as an exciting future growing together.
