Help Rescue North Korean Refugee Children Hiding in Asia

This petition had 394 supporters

Thousands of stateless North Korean refugee children are hiding in China and other Asian countries. For years, these child refugees have had to live in mortal fear of being caught, sent back to North Korea, and jailed for trying to escape the hell that is North Korea. If they are not caught, they are often sold into the sex trade and abused beyond imagination. 

Sign this petition to urge your State representatives to support the North Korean Adoption Act of 2011U.S. Senate Bill S.416 and House Bill HR 1464. The passage of this bill will allow U.S. citizens to adopt North Korean refugee children.

Thousands of American families are ready embrace the opportunity to adopt these children.

As a beacon of hope for the rest of the world, the United States cannot stand idly by and continue to allow these helpless and destitute children to be trafficked or live as prisoners. This is not merely an adoption issue but an issue of human rights

By signing and submitting your name, you are emailing the petition letter below to your representatives in Congress. It is imperative that we let them know we care about these refugee children!
