Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) is an NGO focused on both increasing awareness of the human rights situation in North Korea and bringing North Korean refugees out through the 'underground railroad' and providing resettlement support. With a million dollar plus budget, they’re now one of the major players to focus on North Korea in the United States.
Concentrating mainly on outreach and money-raising activities in universities across North America, their viral social media campaigns, films, t-shirts and scarves all seek to draw attention to what they describe as the “North Korea Crisis”. Having had much success in introducing young people to North Korea, through their fundraising activities the organization has also assisted approximately 100 refugees since early 2010.
