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!...

Please Support H.R. 757, North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act of 2015!  We urge you to contact your House Representative today to express support for H.R. 757. The North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act is a bipartisan legislation that would impose tough, targeted financial sanctions on North Korean leaders who are responsible for crimes against humanity. This legislation will specifically target the regime's ability to carry out its egregious human rights abusers, and the regime's military and security forces. It will also block the assets of the North Korean hackers and intelligence agencies that are censoring our free expression and threatening Americans, right here in America.
