(Co)-Humanitarian (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, (Co)-Humanitarian collaborates with North Korean defector shelters and non-governmental organizations, such as Empower House—a certified refugee resettlement center.
While the North Korean defector shelters offer academic training, housings, and community activities for the North Korean defectors, (Co)-Humanitarian 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, (Co)-Humanitarian 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.
(Co)-Humanitarian is organized by Humans of North Korea
