Fred Rogers Award

Raffi Cavoukian Receives 2006 Fred Rogers Integrity Award

Raffi Cavoukian -  renowned international troubadour, author, and founder of Child Honoring - was the second recipient of the third Fred Rogers Integrity Award.  In his three-decade career, Raffi has refused all commercial endorsement offers, and his triple-bottom-line company has never directly advertised or marketed to children. He is a passionate advocate for a child's right to live free of commercial exploitation.

Senator Tom Harkin Wins 2005 Fred Rogers Integrity Award

Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) was the first recipient of the Fred Rogers Integrity Award.  In 2004, Senator Harkin risked the ire of corporate America by introducing the HeLP America Act, a bill that includes several provisions to protect children from commercial exploitation. Most importantly, the bill would reinstate the Federal Trade Commission's authority to restrict marketing to children; child-directed marketing has escalated exponentially since corporate lobbyists persuaded Congress to rescind the FTC's power to regulate advertising to children in 1980.
