Stand Up for Peace 2012, presented by the Young Leadership Committee, was a huge success! Comics from diverse backgrounds including Dave Atell, Janeane Garofalo, Hannibal Buress, Seth Herzog and Modi made the audience of more than 550 laugh hysterically while bringing them together in support of spreading peace throughout the world. Stand Up for Peace raised $40,000 in donations and ticket sales, and all of the proceeds are going to programs that empower young peacemakers around the globe!
