70 years have passed since the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement, yet the Korean War never officially ended and the US continues its military occupation and brinkmanship on the Korean peninsula. Join DSA IC with the the host of Blowback to hear from Korean organizations and activists from the US and South Korea who will speak on the history and impacts of the war and the possible solutions for organizing toward peace, while countering US-centric narratives that often distort the historical outlook on the war.

Korea Peace Advocacy Week

June 5, 2023

Register here to participate in Korea Peace Advocacy Week!

Every year, Korea Peace Advocacy Week brings together hundreds of people around the country to participate in meetings with their members of Congress to advocate for legislation supporting peace in Korea.

Participants of the 2023 Korea Peace Advocacy Week will join two or three half-hour virtual meetings with Congressional staff of their Representatives and Senators, sharing personal stories and urging members to support legislation focused on Korea peace. (An online training session will be offered before the lobbying meetings.)

This nationally coordinated action is particularly timely as tensions on the Korean Peninsula are running dangerously high: North Korea recently displayed enough ICBMs to overwhelm the U.S.’s missile defense system, the United States and South Korea continue to hold provocative military exercises, and South Korea is considering arming itself with nuclear weapons. It’s clear we need a non-military solution to the security crisis in Korea — now.

This year marks the eighth year of coordinated advocacy days for the cause of peace in Korea, and the fourth year of it being held online.

Korea Peace Advocacy Week is organized by American Friends Service Committee, Mennonite Central Committee, and Women Cross DMZ.

WATCH: Laying out a roadmap for peace in Korea in 2023

March 1, 2023
3 PM EST

2023 has witnessed dangerously high tensions on the Korean Peninsula: North Korea recently displayed enough ICBMs to overwhelm the U.S.’s missile defense system, the United States and South Korea are ramping up joint military exercises, and South Korea is considering arming itself with nuclear weapons. The backdrop to this endless cycle of provocations is the US-China great-power competition, with the Korean Peninsula as its front line. As tensions continue to escalate, how can the Biden administration bring North Korea back to the negotiating table and lay the foundation for peace? The reintroduction of the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act on March 1 provides an opportunity to advocate for an alternative path for Washington — to explore non-military solutions to the security crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

As we approach the 70th anniversary of the signing of the armistice, this webinar will reflect on the current political context and geopolitical dynamics in Korea and the United States, discuss how the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act provides a roadmap toward peace, and empower everyday people to take action.

Speakers include:

Christine Ahn, Women Cross DMZ (Moderator)

Colleen Moore, Women Cross DMZ

Andy Kim, Congressman (D-New Jersey)

J.J. Suh, International Christian University (Tokyo, Japan)

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Brad Sherman (CA-32), senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, led 19 members of Congress in re-introducing the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act – bipartisan legislation that calls for serious, urgent diplomatic engagement in pursuit of a formal end to the Korean War. Congressman Sherman made the announcement in a press conference on Capitol Hill and was joined by his Congressional colleagues along with members of the Korean American Public Action Committee (KAPAC) and supporters of the Korea Peace movement.
