About Liberty in North Korea - Vanderbilt Chapter
Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) is the only full-time grassroots organization in North America devoted to the North Korean humanitarian crises. LiNK provides protection and aid to North Korean refugees hiding in China and, utilizing a modern-day underground railroad through Southeast Asia, rescues refugees and helps them to reach freedom. LiNK’s global grassroots movement works to redefine public perception on North Korea, shifting attention away from the politics and onto the people, and provides a way for concerned citizens to come alongside the North Korean people and help bring about positive change. Every year, thousands of North Koreans risk their lives to escape political and economic oppression. Even if they make it to China, they face grave danger because the Chinese government arrests and forcibly repatriates North Korean refugees. If sent back, they undergo interrogation and are at risk of extremely harsh punishments including torture, forced labor, forced abortions, and internment in a political prison camp. Even if they manage to evade the authorities in China, their illegal status forces them to work in invisible industries and leaves them vulnerable to exploitation by sex traffickers and unscrupulous employers. In these dire circumstances, many North Korean refugees do not have the resources or connections to get themselves out of China. That’s where we come in. We have steadily garnered information about escape routes through China and Southeast Asia and have established relationships with individuals on the ground who can help us move refugees safely across borders. The free passage model ensures that refugees are treated with dignity and respect throughout the risky journey, and allows them to begin their new lives in freedom without the burden of broker loans. The goal of the Vanderbilt chapter, like the goal of each LiNK chapter, is to raise money ($3,000) to help bring North Korean refugees out of hiding in China. The $3,000 provides food, clothing, transportation, shelter, and other necessities during the journey to safety.
