Smart info about the Korean War. Also, tell Congress to formally end it.

On July 23, 2022, AFSC posted this about the Korean War:

5 things to know about the Korean War: On July 27, 1953, an armistice was signed to end three years of fighting on the Korean peninsula. But the United States and North Korea never signed a peace treaty to officially end the Korean War. Nearly 70 years later, this open wound is a root cause of conflict that exists today, writes AFSC’s Jennifer Deibert.

Also, AFSC’s e-mail said this:

Tell Congress: It’s time to formally end the Korean War: A peace agreement with North Korea is a crucial step toward nuclear disarmament. It would also help reunite thousands of families who have been separated for decades. Join us in calling for peace and humanitarian cooperation today!

Another good source urges us to contact Congress about this:

Call on your Congressional representative to cosponsor H.R.3446, the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act. Pursuing diplomacy with North Korea is pivotal to breaking through the stalemate in US-North Korea relations.
