“Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Wednesday, April 5, as he considers running for President of the United States of America. Because of his decision to devote full time to his campaign, Mr. Kennedy’s title is now Children’s Health Defense Chairman on Leave. As part of his life’s work, he will continue to address CHD's core issues — corruption, children's declining health, failures of vaccine safety and more,” states Children’s Health Defense statement.
“My top priority is to end the corrupt merger between state and corporate power that has ruined our economy, shattered the middle class, polluted our landscapes and waters, poisoned our children, and robbed us of our values and freedom. This is central to CHD’s mission. I launched this organization after parents concerned about the meteoric rise in childhood chronic diseases approached me time and time again, urging me to look beyond what mainstream media and government health agencies were telling the public about what was causing these increases. After carefully reviewing the science, it was clear to me that vaccines and other toxic environmental exposures were inextricably linked to rising rates of autism, allergies, autoimmune disorders and a host of other conditions. I knew I could never turn my back on the children and families so profoundly affected by these exposures. My commitment to health freedom, preventing future injuries, unmasking those responsible and holding them accountable will never diminish. It will remain a driving force in all I do,” stated Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Mary Holland, CHD's President and General Counsel will join RFK, Jr. as part of the campaign. Ms. Holland’s titles will now be CHD's President on Leave and General Counsel on Leave.
“The health freedom movement has everything — truth, science, ethics, law — except power. It is time for CHD's issues to take the spotlight. I believe that RFK, Jr.'s campaign will play a crucial role in this shift to center stage,” stated Mary Holland. “And I believe CHD is now stronger than ever. CHD's board and staff have been on the frontlines for decades and are eager to take on these new opportunities as the American public becomes more aware of our critical mission and vision.”
