Liberty in North Korea at UC Davis (LiNK@UCD) is a (relatively young!) college chapter of the trans-national organization Liberty in North Korea (originally founded as a grassroots organization in Yale University). The UC Davis chapter was founded in 2015.
Ever been curious as to what really is going on in North Korea, as it relates to the daily lives of its citizens? With all the attention on the radical political leaders of the day, LiNK@UCD works to bring that same spotlight to the plight of North Koreans. We also raise funds for the long journey that defectors make to resettle in a new country, so keep an eye out for handmade kimbap, donkatsu, and kimchi fried rice fundraisers on our page!
Our biggest event is our annual North Korean refugee speaker event, usually in the first month of Fall Quarter, where we invite a defector to share their narrative of life in North Korea. Past speakers include Ms. Jo Jin Hye (left) and Mr. Park Sang Hak (right)
