Protect Our Candidate

People for Kennedy’s Initiative to Secure Our Candidate the Protection He Deserves

Some Helpful Facts

  • The campaign submitted a 67 page report from the world’s leading protection firm requesting security for Mr. Kennedy
  • There have been well established security and safety risks as well as commonplace death threats
  • 30% of monthly campaign expenditures are spent for private security
  • At least a dozen candidates in the past have had the federal government supply security one year or longer before election day.
    • Obama 551 days before election
    • Ted Kennedy 400 days before election
    • Trump (November 2015 for 2016 election)
    • Ross Perot, a third party candidate, was offered but declined


Current Status:

  • On October 28, Kennedy filed a lawsuit against the DHS and the SS including a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for any correspondence, notes, etc. between the Biden administration, DHS and the SS related to Kennedy’s SS request.
  • On July 21st, Alejandro Mayorkas, President Biden’s Secretary of the DHS, denied Kennedy’s security request writing: “I have determined that Secret Service protection for Robert F Kennedy Jr is not warranted at this time.”
  • One week prior to Christmas, Secretary Mayorkas denied Mr. Kennedy Secret Service protection for the THIRD time, now less than 11 months out from the election.

Why This is Important:

    • Currently, 30% of the campaign’s monthly budget is being spent on private security. Imagine if these funds could be properly allocated to support Mr. Kennedy in meeting people across the country and spreading the truth!
    • Mr. Kennedy’s campaign is not accepting any funds from special interests or corporations. Every cent the campaign has raised is from supporters, like ourselves, who believe in his mission
    • See Gavin De Becker, head of Mr. Kennedy’s private security firm’s message for the importance of federally funded security for our candidate

What You Can Do To Protect Our Candidate:

Follow the simple steps on the following pages:


Have an understanding of who you are calling/emailing and why.

President Biden appointed Secretary Mayorkas who makes the final decision for Mr. Kennedy to receive federally funded protection.  Voicing our opinion will prompt the reconsideration of this decision.

Secretary Mayorakas is the Head of the DHS. By calling and sending him tweets, we are delivering the message straight to the source.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson and House Minority Whip Hakeem Jeffries make up the subcommittee that advises Secretary Mayorkas on this decision. 

By inundating their phone lines, inboxes and tweets with requests to supply our candidate with federally funded security, the message will be relayed to President Biden for Secretary Myorkas to reverse the decision.

“I am calling to request that the President and Secretary Mayorkas reconsider the decision to deny RFK Jr. Secret Service Protection. The need is quite obvious and history supports this protocol. I find it hard to understand their reasoning and hope they can find the decency and compassion to ensure a serious presidential candidate be given protection in the legal pursuit of the highest office of our country. Please tell the President and Secretary I ask them to set aside personal pride and have the administration do what is right for the safety of the candidate, those who surround him, and all Americans involved in our democratic process.”

“I am calling to ask that Secretary Mayorkas grant Secret Service protection to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. The threat Mr. Kennedy faces is indisputable, and it is inconceivable to your Democratic base that his requests have been denied. Please reconsider your ill-advised decision to deny protection to this highly respected American presidential candidate. Thank you.”

“Please grant Secret Service protection for Robert F. Kennedy Jr., as has been offered for every major Presidential candidate in modern history. Given his family history, the need is more acute. Further, denying protection just makes the Biden administration look petty and small.”

“Please provide Secret Service protection for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. It’s bad enough that you refuse to debate him, and that the DNC stacks the rules against him. What happened to fairness and democracy in the Democratic party? What possible rationale is there for denying him security?”


Please use this script as guidance to create one in your own voice.

Hello, I am writing to you today in your role as a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s SubCommittee on presidential candidate protection.
I understand that as a SubCommittee member you recommended that Secretary Myorkas not provide Secret Service protection to presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr. Given the importance of this matter I am hoping you will change your mind on this and let the Secretary and President know.
