Raising Awareness

NKinUSA has raised awareness of North Korea’s crimes against humanity and other human rights violations by testifying before the British Parliament, the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, U.S. Congressional Executive Commission on China and the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in North Korea. Vice-President Grace Jo was also a guest of the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations at a UN Security Council session that addressed North Korean human rights.

To raise awareness for human rights in North Korea, NKinUSA has also given speeches on the human rights situation in North Korea in collaboration with student organizations at universities across America including Princeton University, George Mason University, Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins University and University of Chicago. NKinUSA also has hosted the ‘Unification of the Mind Conference’ with Emancipate North Koreans (ENoK) to encourage a vision for a reunified Korean Peninsula in the minds of North Korean defectors and Korean-American students. NKinUSA is working closely with the North Korea Freedom Coalition led by Suzanne Scholte and participates in several events and projects such as anti-forced repatriation protests at the Chinese Embassy.
