Tensions between the U.S. and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (or “North Korea”) are on the rise. In June, North Korea conducted missile tests, and the U.S. and South Korea responded with missile of tests of their own. Meanwhile, COVID-19 in North Korea threatens millions of people already facing shortages of food and basic supplies.
The U.S. must act now to build peace and humanitarian cooperation with North Korea.
It has been more than 70 years since the start of the Korean War. Though an armistice was signed in 1953 to end active fighting, the United States and North Korea never signed a peace treaty to officially end the Korean War. This open wound is a root cause of the conflict and hostilities still present on the Korean Peninsula today.
This “forever war” risks further military conflict, fuels arms races, exacerbates global humanitarian crises, and keeps families separated. And it’s time for it to end.
Join us in calling for peace and humanitarian cooperation today!
