Yosef Yomtov was inspired years ago to create anti-propaganda tracts to share truth and understanding through comics that anyone could grasp. Today, as the founder of World Peace Tracts, he uses words, diplomacy, and leadership to create pathways to peace and conflict resolution. Yosef shares with Frontrunners Innovate Producer and Host, Mary Kurek, his journey toward creating a platform for peace and the projects he’s working on now.

Yosef Yomtov’s Short Bio:
Yosef Yomtov is a stateless refugee born in Egypt and grew up in San Francisco where he ran a business remediating buildings to survive earthquakes. In 1999 Yosef immigrated to Israel where he now lives in Jerusalem. In 2005, Yosef conceived of the idea to establish World Peace Tracts, when watching a war propaganda literature drop by US soldiers in Baghdad. This spawned the idea to create short messages of hope and peace to break the lies and propaganda of war. Since that time, World Peace Tracts has expanded its mission to include diplomacy and has over 700 ambassadors across over 70 countries.
