Join us for Korea Peace Action: National Mobilization to End the Korean War, July 26-28, 2023, in Washington, DC.
To mark the 70th anniversary of the Korean Armistice, peace advocates from around the country will converge in the nation’s capital to call on President Biden and Congress to officially end the Korean War and replace the armistice with a peace agreement.
This national gathering is being organized by peace activists, humanitarian aid organizations, and groups representing veterans, faith traditions, and Korean American communities. Activities will include a press conference at the House triangle with Korea Peace champions, a community grief ceremony, a rally at the White House calling for peace in Korea, and a conference featuring strategists and activists organizing for peace in Korea.
