Korea Peace Advocacy Week

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.
