Based in New York City, Nodutdol is a community of first through fourth generation Koreans living in the U.S. We are a community that has families in both, the south and north of Korea. We are diverse in our backgrounds and perspectives, but bound together by our shared sense of the Korean homeland that continues to suffer under division, part of the Korean diaspora spread throughout the globe made up of artists, filmmakers, teachers, students, workers, professionals, families, those who believe in social justice.
Nodutdol is celebrating our 20th anniversary! Twenty years of growing and building an active organization: presenting educational forums and screenings; participating in solidarity events, public protests and demonstrations; working with international and US-based groups on Korea peace and unification; in support of the democratic and workers struggles in southern Korea; working against militarism here and abroad; and supporting local NYC struggles against police brutality and gentrification and more. In addition, for over a decade we have been leading KEEP (Korean Education and Exposure Program) trips to both sides of the peninsula—and working with sister organizations across the country to build a broader progressive KA movement. We are excited about our work and about the future of progressive Korean American activity! We hope you share our excitement and commitment and hope you will consider making a contribution to support our work—and if you’re in town, attending our annual fundraiser, the 2019 Kimchi Bowl on December 7, 2019 at NYU at 53 Washington Square South at 7 PM.
