The links below offer several actions you can take for peace:

πŸͺ§ Rally to end the Korean War – Washington DC, July 27, 2023
July 27, 2023 marks 70 years since the armistice that froze the Korean War in an unended state of war. Come to Washington D.C. this summer to march with us for an end to the Korean War! If you’re 30 or younger, you can apply for free travel and lodging in DC here. Anyone can register to attend events and the DC march at the link above or find more information here:

🎞 Host a documentary watch party, July 2023
A group of 30 prominent international peacemakers traveled to Korea in 2015 to call for an end to the Korean War. Their journey through north and south Korea is documented in Crossings, a beautifully told story that will be released on PBS the week of July 23rd, 2023. This documentary educates and inspires work for peace in Korea. For more information, register your interest in hosting a watch party through the link above.

✍️ Sign the Korea Peace Appeal / ✍️ ν•œκ΅­ μ „μŸ μ’…μ „κ³Ό 평화λ₯Όμœ„ν•œ μ„œλͺ…ν•΄ μ£Όμ„Έμš”
A coalition of south Korean civil organizations and churches invite the international community to call on all nations involved in the Korean War to end this war once and for all. Read their statement and sign the Korea Peace Appeal through the link above.

πŸ“§ Ask Congress for Peace on the Korean Peninsula
2023 is the 70th anniversary of the armistice that paused, but did not end the Korean War. A peace agreement and normalization of relations never followed, leaving the Korean peninsula in an unended state of war, cycles of militarization, threats, and fear. Many Americans do not realize that because the USA was a signatory to the armistice agreement, north and south Korea cannot negotiate peace without the USA’s involvement. This is why it is vital that Americans ask our government for an official end to the war. There is a bill in the US House of Representatives (H.Res. 1369) which calls for an end to the Korean War. American friends can click the link above to email representatives in support of this bill.

✍️ Petition to LIFT the travel ban to DPRK
Since 2017, the United States government has banned American citizens from traveling to the DPRK (north Korea). This travel ban prevents me from returning to the small-scale, humanitarian engagement I once did in the DPRK. The travel ban also keeps Korean-American families separated from loved ones in north Korea and ended decades of working relationships American people had with north Koreans. We are asking the United States government to reverse this travel ban and let individuals freely travel. Join us through the link above.


The following links introduce campaigns working for peace in Korea:

πŸ“ƒ Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act, H.Res. 1369

✌🏾 MLK on US Foreign Policy
Some Americans have forgotten that Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke out on foreign policy. I consider his words a prophetic call that the American government should heed. This link will take you to a podcast on that very subject.

πŸ’œ Nonviolence
A website with excellent resources to teach you what nonviolence looks like in practice. Nonviolence is not passivity, rather “love in action.” For Christian friends, I encourage you to take the biblical injunction to “overcome evil with good” (Rom. 12:21) as an invitation to a life of active nonviolence.

πŸ“– Themes of Catholic Social Teaching
Catholic advocates may find this resource instructive for how the Church’s social teaching guides us to build a just society and live lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society.
