Local Events on the coming Trump Kim summit 

Manifest Support for Peace and Diplomacy in Your Community February 26 as Trump and Kim meet in Vietnam

Organizations participating in the Korea Peace Network are planning local vigils and actions on or before February 26, to coincide with the second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The confab will be in Vietnam February 27-28, and because of the time difference, February 26 or before (U.S. time) is best to hold local events.

Possible events could include:

–      Vigils, and if in the evening, candlelight vigils would be appropriate to pay homage to the Candlelight Revolution in South Korea
–      Events with Methodist, Presbyterian or other churches/faith-based organizations with a strong Korean-American presence
–      Gathering at a local Korean restaurant (with the management’s agreement and hopefully participation of course!)
–      Teach-ins or public forums on Korea at a local college or university

Make sure to send a press release to your local media about your event. This ought to go without saying, but please ensure Korean and Korean-American voices are front and center whenever possible.

Email koreapeacenetwork@gmail.com to tell us the details of your local event and we’ll add it to our national list of local actions, and perhaps list it in a national press release. Also, if you create a FaceBook event page, we can share it on the Korea Peace Network FaceBook page. We’ll also have a social media campaign around the summit you can help promote.
