Pledge drive for Cartoonists Rights Network International
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.
If you set up a direct debit of $50 or less today, it will be matched in the first two months by Every.org – but only while their offer lasts!
