The organization, Cartooning for Peace, was created in 2006 by Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General, and Jean Plantu, cartoonist for the leading French newspaper Le Monde. The first conference, held in October 2006 at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York City, brought 12 international cartoonists together on the topic of “Unlearning Intolerance.” Since that time, Cartooning for Peace, which is headquartered in Paris, has continually organized conferences and exhibitions showcasing cartoonists’ expressions of peace. After several conferences were held in the United States, Cartooning for Peace-America formed as a US non-profit organization in February 2009. Cartooning for Peace-America’s inaugural symposium in 2012 gathered cartoonists from North and South America and Europe, united by the will to share their work and their experiences of peace and health in their communities.
