Urging Action for Human Rights in North Korea


This petition being circulated by the North Korea Freedom Coalition calls for support of key legislation in the U.S. Congress aimed at addressing human rights abuses in North Korea. It highlights bipartisan bills currently pending in Congress, and urges action to address the ongoing North Korean refugee crisis. Furthermore, it emphasizes the necessity to ensure human rights remain central in all DPRK negotiations. Our ultimate goal is to alleviate the suffering of the North Korean people and hold the Kim regime accountable for its ongoing crimes against humanity.

If you support the passage of these bills and advocate for action to uphold North Korean human rights, please sign the petition. It will be delivered to all members of Congress in mid-July by members of the Korean Church Coalition (KCC) during their annual visit to the nation's capital who will be joined by members of the North Korea Freedom Coalition.
