Support Human Rights in North Korea

The Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK), founded in 2001 and based in Washington DC, is a non-partisan human rights organization whose principal objective is to raise international awareness of North Korea’s human rights situation through the publication of well documented reports and by undertaking outreach activities in support of the recommendations in those reports.

HRNK’s funding comes primarily from foundations and individual donors. When the organization accepts funding from governments, it will be to further the mission of HRNK and not for any other purpose. As a non-governmental organization, HRNK is independent from the direction of any government or from being under government influence in any way. It is the objectivity, impartiality and quality of HRNK’s reports that have established its reputation and leading role in the network of human rights, humanitarian assistance, and policy organizations focused on North Korea. The organization under all circumstances will uphold its independent and non-political judgment in addressing North Korea’s human rights situation.
