Liberty Live Tour 2008

At this summer's JACL National Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, the National Youth/Student Council (NYSC - where both Jenn and I sit as reps.) passed a resolution for the JACL to support North Korean Human Rights. Check out Jenn's post to learn more about the resolution here.

After reading Angry Asian Man this morning, I found out the Liberty Live Tour 2008 is traveling across the nation to help promote awareness of the injustices of the humanitarian crisis in North Korea.

The tour features the band Miss Vintage and LA-based singer/songwriter Andy Grammer collaborating with non-profit org Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) to raise awareness of North Korean human rights violations in 22 major cities/universities.

LiNK presented a workshop on the human rights crisis in North Korea at the 2007 JACL National Youth Conference in Santa Clara.

UC Berkeley is included as a stop on that tour on Sunday, October 12th.

Tickets are only $10.00. Looks like it would be a great October Event for Nakayoshi. Let us know if you're interested in going!




Definitely take some time to educate yourself on the issues that are happening in North Korea, and if you're interested in finding out more on how you can help or get involved, feel free to contact the NCWNP Youth Reps (Megumi and Jenn) at jaclyouth@gmail.com.
