Engaging North Korea

Tensions between the U.S. and DPRK (North Korea) are reaching new heights, and the possibility for military conflict is growing. 

AFSC has worked in Korea for over 65 years, and we know that, in the words of Nelson Mandela, "if you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner." 

Opportunities exist for cooperation between the U.S. and DPRK even in today's climate. We invite you to learn more about these opportunities and join us in calling for peace on the Korean Peninsula.

AFSC's Daniel Jasper explains why the "humanitarian channel" is an overlooked avenue for positive engagement between the U.S. and North Korea.
