Humans of North Korea (HNK) (2016-) stands for human rights advocacy for the North Korean defectors in the United States and educates the public about global citizenship through the complex identities and socio-political history of the Korean heritage.
With an aim to guide the public’s perception on North Korea and its defectors in the United States, HNK collaborates with North Korean defector shelters and non-governmental organizations, such as Empower House—a certified refugee resettlement shelter and education center.
While the North Korean defector shelters offer academic training, housings, and community activities for the North Korean defectors, HNK contributes cultural and communal activities to engage with the participants in the defector shelter. With experienced visual and critical knowledge of historical and cultural operation, HNK shares the communicative and educational platforms of sensitivity, honesty, and trust with the North Korean defectors, volunteers, educational institutions, regional communities, and other cultural organizations.
