Our grassroots peace movement needs your support!
As 2021 draws to a close, we hope you will consider supporting our work to end the Korean War and bring lasting peace to the Korean Peninsula.
Although talks between the US and North Korea remain at a standstill, we have been busy building the political will for a peace agreement. Among our efforts:
- Building Korea Peace Champions in Congress for H.R.3446
- Released the groundbreaking report Path to Peace: The Case for a Peace Agreement to End the Korean War, including presentations to the U.S. Congress, the State Department, UN agencies, and the Canadian Government.
- Launched the Let Individuals Freely Travel (LIFT) campaign to pressure the Biden administration to sunset the Trump-era ban on Americans traveling to North Korea.
- Mobilized nearly 400 organizations globally to urge President Biden to cancel the spring 2021 US-ROK military exercises.
While we receive the support of a small handful of foundations, we depend on the support of our grassroots base to continue our critical and urgent work. Can we count on you to make an end-of-year contribution to support our transnational peace campaign?
We have exciting plans for 2022 and beyond:
- Organizing screenings of the new documentary Crossings about our movement for peace in Korea (see photos from the premiere in Hawai’i here)
- Strategizing with our partners and allies on ramping up our efforts to pressure the Biden administration to end the Korean War
- Establishing campus chapters of Korea Peace Now! to cultivate the next generation of Korea peace activists
Your support is vital as we continue to gain traction and visibility, and become the unfortunate target of attacks by those who profit from continued war and militarization. Donate now!
Mark your calendars: On December 9 at 4pm ET, please join us for “Peace and Human Rights in North Korea: An Argument for Ending the War.” Speakers will include Elizabeth Beavers, an attorney, analyst, and advocate focused on national security and human rights law and policy; Su-mi Jeon, a human rights attorney based in South Korea; and Tomás Ojea Quintana, UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in North Korea. Register for the event here.
In peace and hope,
The team at Korea Peace Now!
