Why Get Involved?

An estimated 3 million North Koreans have perished under North Korea's brutal dictatorial regime since the mid-1990s. Families continue to starve to death as the North Korean government withholds food rations to entire regions of the nation. The government arbitrarily detains, tortures, and executes its citizens, including children, in a large network of prison/labor camps. Hundreds of thousands of North Koreans have fled to China to survive, however they live in fear of forced repatriation, imprisonment, and possible execution after repatriation. Children whose parents have died or been separated from them wander the streets in search of food and protection. We must act now to bring relief!...

  • The North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act of 2013 (H.R. 1771) PASSED in the U.S. House of Representatives in July 2014!  NEXT STEP: Please Contact Your Senator!  We urge you to request support from your Senator for H.R. 1771. This bipartisan legislation would impose tough, targeted financial sanctions on North Korean leaders who are responsible for crimes against humanity and would significantly decrease North Korea's profoundly egregious human rights abuses. These powerful financial sanctions are similar to those that were effective against Kim Jong Il, before they were prematurely lifted. Similar sanctions have also imposed effective pressure on Iran, Burma, and Sudan. The legislation takes up the Call to Action of the United Nations Commission of Inquiry, which published its detailed findings on Feb 7, 2014.  Feel free to use this sample letter to contact your Senator.
