Listen to the gripping story of Yeonmi Park, a 25-year-old North Korean defector turned human rights activist. Hear about her heroic journey to freedom, from her harrowing escape to South Korea through China’s underworld of smugglers and human traffickers, to her emergence as a leading human rights activist.
MSNBC’s Richard Lui and Justice Initiative Director, Krishna Patel, will join Yeonmi to share their own stories from the front lines of the fight against trafficking and discuss the importance of raising awareness, joining the fight, and inspiring action to combat modern-day slavery.
Following the discussion, Yeonmi Park will sign copies of her book, In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom.
Join us before the program for our October Community Dinner.
