Cartoonists Rights Network, International is a non-profit organisation, based in the United States, that looks to protect the human rights and creative freedom of social and editorial cartoonists.

It monitors and supports the well-being of political cartoonists who find themselves in trouble and directly through affiliates has helped cartoonists to seek asylum from countries where they have been threatened, or suffered harassment, often from government authorities.[1]
