Description
The collection is mostly about Korean human rights and democratic development during the 1970s and 1980s in the United States. Also, it contains information on how American religious and citizen groups participated in activities in Washington, DC and abroad to promote Korean democracy.
Background
The "Korea Church Coalition for Peace, Justice, and Reunification" (formerly named "North American Coalition for Human Rights in Korea") was formed in 1975 during the Yushin period by concerned religious and human rights activists in the United States. According to the Coalition, the organization was "the major voice which spoke out on behalf of victims of human rights abuses as well as supported efforts for democracy in Korea."
