Description

No Chain (The Association of North Korean Political Victims & Their Families) is proud to present an event to celebrate a decade of North Korean defectors' resettlement in the United States, on Tuesday December 6th at 3pm at the DC Public Library, Georgetown Branch (GEO Meeting Room)

Join us for an afternoon of celebration and commemoration with a group of US-resettled North Korean defectors who are now proud American citizens; they will share their stories of life in North Korea, why and how they escaped, their lives now living as American citizens, and most importantly - why they chose to come to the United States instead of South Korea, as well as a message to the new administration coming into power next year. The panel will feature North Korean defectors who were part of the first wave to arrive in the US, as well as more recently resettled defectors. The Honorable Robert King, U.S. Special Envoy for North Korean Human Rights Issues, will give Welcoming Remarks.

"We are truly humbled and grateful to the North Korean defectors in America for taking time out of their busy schedules to join this special and unique event," said Jung Gwang Il, Founder and Executive Director of No Chain.
