She not only leads Imagine Peace, the peace movement organization, but is committed to peace travel and peace education with an aim to help others practice peace in our everyday lives. Im is now also working with other peace activists to open peace libraries in many regions including Aceh, Indonesia.

Lawmaker Sun-Young Park has been involved in many human rights issues at the National Assembly including issues on Koreans in Sakhalin, comfort women, and abolition of death penalty.
