Human Rights in North Korea - documentary and discussion with NK defector

As the UN's inquiry into human rights in North Korea unfolds, join us for an evening to learn about the hermit kingdom - North Korea, a totalitarian state with horrendous human rights abuses. Completely isolated by choice from the world physically and digitally, it is hard to see what life is like in North Korea. We will screen a short documentary - Inside North Korea to explore what life in North Korea is like. Following, there will be a discussion and an opportunity for questions and answers with Seongmin Lee, who defected from North Korea in 2009.

There is a suggested donation of 5$ for this event. Proceeds will go to support the HanVoice Pioneers Project, which gives defectors from North Korea opportunities to develop their skills to become effective leaders and advocates for human rights in North Korea.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
