Mark Kennedy Shriver – 50th Anniversary Gala’s Keynote Speaker

Father’s Legacy Instrumental in the Creation of Community Action

 
CRT was proud and honored to have Mark K. Shriver serve as the 50th Anniversary Gala’s Keynote Speaker. 
 
Mark leads Save the Children's U.S. Programs, which works to ensure a fair start for all children in the United States, including the nearly one in four living in poverty.  Shriver’s career fighting for social justice in advocacy and service organizations, as well as elected office, has focused on advancing the right of every child in America to have a safe and vibrant childhood.
 
He is also the son of Sargent Shriver, who is credited among many accomplishments as the architect of Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty” initiatives that led to the creation of community action agencies. Mark credits his father’s life as an inspiration and guiding force in his life. Shriver’s New York Times and Washington Post best-selling memoir, “A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver,” was published in June 2012 by Henry Holt.
