People Not Politics
The North Korea crisis is thought to be many things: polarizing, dauntingly complex, a political nightmare. Most of what we hear usually relates to the political and security issues. But we’re working to change the conversation on North Korea to focus on the people instead, and are committed to bringing much needed attention to their stories. It starts with awareness, which produces action, and for us, that’s just the beginning.

HELPING THOSE WE CAN REACH NOW
Tens of thousands of North Koreans have escaped their country and are hiding in China today. We can reach them and help bring them to safety and freedom. These refugees play an important role in providing valuable information about North Korea. They also act as a bridge back into the country, sending money and information about the outside world to their families,helping to break down the regime’s propaganda and increasing the pressure for change from within. Until North Korea goes through a radical transformation, the people will continue to risk their lives to leave, and we will continue in our efforts to provide assistance to them.

EMPOWERING THE NORTH KOREAN PEOPLE
Although we cannot know the exact path through which the North Korean people will gain their freedom, we believe that pressure from the people inside the country will be crucial for producing change. We will continue to research and develop long-term strategies with a focus on the North Korean people that will empower them to create and accelerate change.
