LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization devoted to helping and protecting North Korean refugees. LiNK’s mission is to spread awareness and bring positive change to North Korea. LiNK aims to achieve this end, in part, through nationwide screenings in the United States of this documentary, which shares North Korean refugees’ stories of hope and survival. The documentary features governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and institutions’ support for the North Korean people. Private donors support liNK’s work.

“We are honored to have LiNK come to Gonzaga to raise awareness about this silenced issue,” said GU junior Kelly Alderman, president of ISU. “It is one of the greatest human rights conflicts of our generation. We hope by bringing this to Gonzaga and the community that there will be a call to action.”
