Voices of North Korean Refugees with Vice President Grace Jo and Board Member Andrew Hong this Saturday, January 27

North Korea Study Group (a student organization at Harvard Kennedy School) is hosting an event featuring a North Korean refugee and professional Korean musicians and dancers.

Date and Time: Saturday, January 27th, 2018, 5-7pm
Location: Harvard Kennedy School, Malkin Penthouse

The event will also feature the work of ENoK, a 501(c)3 organization that has been running a shelter/educational center (Empower House) for North Korean refugees in Chicago for the last 4 years and looks to open another such facility in the East Coast.

Amidst the increasing tension between the U.S. and North Korean governments, this event will highlight the human side of “North Korea” as well as ways American citizens can engage in supporting refugees from the country.

In addition, the audience will have an exclusive opportunity to listen to “Fanfare for Pyeongchang”, a couple of weeks in advance of the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics (Pyeongchang 2018). The composer, Dr. Texu Kim, will be in attendance.

This event is open to public, and refreshments will be served.
