Understanding the People of North Korea

On March 14, 2013, The Colin L. Powell Center for Leadership and Service explored Korean issues and insights with a screening of “Understanding the People of North Korea,” followed by a discussion moderated by The Korea Society’s Senior Vice President, Dr. Stephen Noerper. Panelists included Dr. Kathryn Weathersby, Korea Studies Visiting Scholar at Johns Hopkins’ School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), as well as LiNK nomads Meera Kaushik, student of economics and international relations at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, and Eunice Kwon, marketing specialist and graduate of California State University-Fresno.

Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) is the only full-time grassroots organization in North America devoted to the North Korean human rights and humanitarian crises. LiNK provides protection and aid to North Korean refugees hiding in China and, utilizing a modern-day underground railroad through Southeast Asia, rescues refugees and helps them to reach freedom. LiNK’s global grassroots movement works to redefine public perception on North Korea, shifting attention away from the politics and onto the people, and provides a way for concerned citizens to come alongside the North Korean people and help bring about positive change. LiNK also works to develop people-focused strategies that will have the potential to promote change inside North Korea in the long term.
