coming to a city near you: link's crossing tour



I've been meaning to post something about this for a couple of weeks... Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) is a humanitarian organization focused on helping North Korean refugees and raising awareness about North Korean human rights issues. They do great work, and I've written about their efforts in the past.

LiNK is currently in the midst of promoting the award-winning South Korean feature film Crossing with a two-month, 300-screening national tour on college campuses across the country. Based on actual accounts from over a hundred North Korean refugees, the film tells the powerful story of refugees' dangerous journey across the North Korean border to freedom. Watch the trailer here.

To learn more about the film, as well the work LiNK is doing to bring relief and awareness to the plight of North Korean refugees, go to the organization's website here. Check the touring schedule to see when and where the film will be screening near you. Or better yet, maybe you or your organization can host a screening.
