Support humanitarian access to North Korea
Urge your senators to support humanitarian exemptions that enable life-saving aid to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK or North Korea). In recent weeks changes in U.S. policies have blocked the travel of U.S. organizations to North Korea to monitor humanitarian assistance. The U.S. government has an obligation under applicable UN Security Council resolutions to allow humanitarian access to the DPRK. It has been longstanding U.S. policy that humanitarian activity should continue even when diplomatic tensions rise.
