Tensions between the U.S. and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (or “North Korea”) are on the rise. In recent weeks, North Korea has conducted missile tests, and the U.S. and South Korea have responded with missile of tests of their own. Meanwhile, a recent outbreak of COVID-19 in North Korea threatens millions already facing shortages of food and basic supplies.
The U.S. must act now to build peace and humanitarian cooperation with North Korea.
June 25, 2022 marks the 72nd anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War. Though there was a ceasefire in 1953, the United States and North Korea have yet to sign 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!
