Three-day event with conference set to advocate for Korea peace agreement

July 26, 2023 - July 28, 2023


To mark the 70th anniversary of the armistice which halted the combat of the Korean War, a three-day event will be held in July in Washington DC  to push for a peace agreement to formally end the Korean War.

The event, dubbed Korea Peace Action: National Mobilization to End the Korean War will take place July 26-28, 2023. The organizers include peace activists, humanitarian aid organizations, and groups representing veterans, faith traditions, and Korean American communities.

The activities will include a Congressional media briefing, a community grief ceremony, a rally in front of the White House, and a march to the Korean War Veterans Memorial for an interfaith candlelight vigil.

On Friday, July 28, there will be a conference at George Washington University, entitled “Prospects and Challenges for a Peace Agreement,” featuring a panel with a keynote speech by eminent Korea historian Bruce Cumings on the human costs of unending war.

Registration is required due to space limitations, but there is no fee.   For more information:  www.koreapeaceaction.org
