Shining Light on the Darkest Place in the World: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom. Presented by UPC Nebraska and The Forsythe Family Program on Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs.

Yeonmi Park was born October 4, 1993, and is a North Korean defector and human rights activist who escaped to China in 2007 and settled in South Korea in 2009. She came from an educated, politically connected family that turned to black market trading during North Korea’s economic collapse in the 1990s. After her father was sent to a labor camp for smuggling, her family fled to China, where Park and her mother fell into the hands of human traffickers before escaping to Mongolia. She is now an advocate for victims of human trafficking in China and works to promote human rights in North Korea and around the globe.
