Cartoonists Rights Network International's Fall fundraiser

There are three cartoon-based charities* that I recommend that defend freedom of speech or help cartoonist's lives. CRNI takes on the international cases - the people who might be disappeared, sued, or assaulted for their opinions. We've seen the chilling effect of book bans and attacks on graphic novels, cartoonists and publishers in the US over the past few years, and it's time to put some money into pushing back against the forces of repression. I'm donating $100 as soon as I send this post - Mike Rhode
*I also support CBLDF and Hero Initiative

Give monthly or once only; credit/debt card, Venmo and PayPal accepted.

US DONORS: CRNI is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, federal tax ID 54-1982242. Your contribution is tax deductible to the full extent allowable.

Holiday pledge drive 2022 – target $2,500

Free Expression doesn't come cheap. In fact, multiple cartoonists have lost their lives in their pursuit of that right. Others have been assaulted and abused, criminalized or imprisoned, and an increasing number are displaced from their homes.

Our mission is to defend these vulnerable cartoonists, including material aid for those in emergencies. Now more than ever we can only meet their needs with your help. When you donate, you show support of our work and your commitment to human rights and free expression.

Please note online payment is by far our preferred method, and the only option for supporters overseas. Those in the USA who still wish to donate via check or money order may do so, made payable to "Cartoonists Rights Network International" at PO Box 7272, Fairfax Station, VA 22039
