Ending the Korean War - Films, Conference, Action - May 8-10th

May 8th - 10th, 2013 in Los Angeles

A series of events on the legacy of the Korean war on generations of Koreans and Americans and the efforts being made to work for peace on the Korean peninsula. This year, 2013, marks the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Korean War Armistice, which brought a halt to the fighting. However, the Korean War has never ended, and the current crisis only emphasizes the danger of renewed hostilities.

The National Campaign to End the Korean War is one of the cosponsors of these series of events with lead hosts: UCLA's Center for Korean Studies, and the Korea Policy Institute.
