Baram — an undergraduate organization dedicated to academically supporting the North Korean community — is hosting Liberty in North Korea’s “Advocacy Fellows” to tell their personal stories of defection from North Korea. These Fellows are the next generation of North Korean leaders, storytellers, and advocates. Liberty in North Korea is a non-profit organization based in the US and South Korea working with the North Korean people to achieve their freedom. LiNK has helped over 1,300 North Korean refugees and their children escape through a modern-day underground-railroad, supporting their new lives in freedom and helping build their capacity as storytellers, advocates and agents of change. LiNK also develops strategies and tools to empower North Korean people inside the country with access to more outside information and technology.
