Millions of people in the United States woud like to see a new U.S. policy towards North Korea. Instead of endless hostility, threats of war and harsh economic sanctions, it is time to sign a peace treaty ending the war between the United States and the DPRK once and for all, and to normalize relations.

How can that be achieved? What is the legacy of the Korean War and how does that impact U.S./South Korea/North Korea relations today? How do we break through the racist demonization of North Korea presented by the U.S. government and the corporate media?

Join us to:
-Learn about Legacies of the Korean War, a new online oral-history project that documents the stories of Korean American survivors of the war and their descendants
-Hear an eyewitness account, and see photographs and videos depciting what North Korea is really like-as opposed to the racist demonization presented by the media
