THE HEARTLAND INSTITUTE’S
38TH ANNIVERSARY BENEFIT DINNER

Freedom is fragile. Who will fight for us when we’re not free?

It is hard to imagine a more-worthy recipient of the 2022 Heartland Liberty Prize than the remarkable and brave Yeonmi Park. In her book, In Order to Live, Park recounts her harrowing escape from North Korea at the age of 13 – a journey to freedom few have the courage to undertake, and fewer survive.

Join us on October 21 to hear her inspiring story, learn what life is really like in the “Hermit Kingdom” of communist North Korea, and why she worries for the future of freedom here in America.
