Last week, the second annual RFK Young Leaders event went down at the Angel Orensanz Center, on Norfolk Street. The space was perfect: blue lighting, gothic architecture, crystal chandeliers, and a neon pastel pink, orange, and green exterior.  The fundraiser, hosted by Kerry Kennedy, was a boost for their newest campaign, “Except Farm Workers” which advocates giving New York farm employees the same basic labor rights that everyone else in the state receives.
