TODAY, Wed, April 10 at 8:00 p.m.:
Danny from North Korea film screening
North Korea’s nuclear threats have drawn a storm of recent media coverage. But what about the people who live under this unstable, oppressive regime?
Every year, thousands of North Koreans make the dangerous journey across the border to escape oppression and poverty.
In March of 2005, Danny was one of them.
He escaped a life of indoctrination, routine public executions, and starvation. This is a documentary about Danny’s story—from his challenging life in North Korea, to his brave escape to China, and his resettlement journey in the United States.
Join Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) at Brown as we screen Danny’s story for the first time in Rhode Island. The screening will take place on Wed, April 10, 8:00-9:00 p.m. in MacMillan Hall 117.Admission is FREE; donations are welcome.
FREE popcorn and refreshments will be provided.
Shrimp & avocado sushi will be sold for $4.50 a roll.
All proceeds will go toward supporting LiNK at Brown’s efforts to provide aid to North Korean refugees and raise awareness of the North Korean human rights crisis.

This event is hosted by Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) at Brown, and co-sponsored by the East Asian Studies DUG, the Korean International Students Association (KISA), the Korean American Students Association (KASA), and the Asian/Asian American Heritage Series.
What is LiNK? People, not politics. At Liberty in North Korea (LiNK), we believe in focusing on people in need and the human element of the North Korea crisis. LiNK is a national NGO whose work centers on providing aid to North Korean refugees, assisting with their transition to life in a new country, promoting awareness of the North Korean human rights crisis through media, and cultivating grassroots activism through official LiNK chapters. LiNK at Brown’s mission is twofold: (1) We raise awareness of the North Korean crisis at Brown, emphasizing the human story of North Korean refugees; and (2) we also seek to help LiNK provide aid to refugees through fundraising.
Queer + Asian is a discussion group and social space that promotes active dialogue on the unique intersection of LGBTQ and Asian identities. We provide students with a fun and confidential environment that allows them to develop their narratives and make new friends, with free food! The group is open to all Brown & RISD students. The meeting will be on March 7 (Thursday) 8:30PM at the Third World Center.
