The beneficiaries for this month are HOBAK (hella organized bay area koreans) and NODUTOL (NYC) which are 2 korean diasporic organizations working together to end the Korean war and uproot the US colonial presence from the Korean peninsula.
This summer, in the 10th year of the war on terrorism, a member of HOBAK will join NODUTDOL on a very important peace delegation and cultural exposure program to North Korea to break through the deliberate economic and political blockade between the US and NK. In preparation, we will be raising funds for medical supplies to take as humanitarian aid as well as engage with folks their about the reality of life for queer and gender non conforming Koreans in the diaspora that offers a lens critical of class, gender, sexuality, ability, and race.
