Mobilize for peace in Korea this July 27!
Register now for Korea Peace Action: National Mobilization to End the Korean War!
This July 27 will mark the 70th anniversary of the armistice that temporarily halted but did not end the Korean War. To call attention to the human costs of this unresolved war, peace advocates from around the country will converge in Washington, D.C., July 26-28, 2023, to call on President Biden and Congress to officially end the Korean War and replace the armistice with a peace agreement.
This national gathering is being organized by peace activists, humanitarian aid organizations, and groups representing veterans, faith traditions, and Korean American communities. Activities will include a press conference at the House Triangle with congressional Korea Peace champions, a community grief ceremony, a rally at the White House calling for peace in Korea, and a conference featuring scholars, activists, the foremost nuclear scientist on North Korea, military experts, and accomplished writers, artists, and musicians whose work is shaped by the enduring trauma of a divided Korea.
A full schedule of events can be found here.
