David Sugarman, founder of the #BringBaeBack social media campaign, has worked tirelessly since January 2014 to keep Kenneth Bae in the media and in the minds’ of the American people. In his efforts, Sugarman has met with high-ranking officials of the United States as well as the DPRK (North Korea) and has an upcoming trip planed to the DPRK .
“I’ve talked to countless Americans in person and through Social Media and the sentiment is always the same, which is why don’t we have Kenneth Bae back in the US?” said Sugarman. “Now Bae is in the news again following an interview with CNN." CNN has been a publicly vocal supporter of the #BringBaeBack campaign, airing several interviews with David Sugarman. "This is a crucial time when demonstrating our support for Kenneth Bae is absolutely necessary.”
The #BringBaeBack social media campaign seeks to bring the plight of Bae, who has been sentenced to 15 years in a North Korean prison for “hostile acts against the republic,” back to the forefront of the public consciousness. Using the Twitter hashtag #BringBaeBack, people can boost the support for Kenneth, learn more about what he has suffered during his imprisonment, time in the work camp and most recently during his time spent in medical facilities.
David Sugarman, as well as others involved in with the #BringBaeBack advocacy, have devoted their time pro-bono to assist with the efforts to bring Kenneth Bae home to the United States. Publicizing this effort on Bae's behalf is crucial to ensure that he is not forgotten. There is no compensation provided to Sugarman or the team for their work.
