Dear Friends and Allies,
On behalf of the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium (NAKASEC) and the Korean Resource Center (KRC), we invite you to support our joint fundraiser and celebration of NAKASEC and KRC on Friday, September 14, 2012 at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles, California. With 300 people from the Korean American and wider communities expected to attend, the dinner fundraiser sustain NAKASEC and KRC programs and campaigns that serve and empower Korean American, immigrant, and working families.
This year’s theme, “United in Action: Generations Making Change,” reflects our work to bring together all of our community to build a movement for social change. We move youth and seniors, immigrants and second generation, long-time community activists and budding leaders alike into action in order to realize a just, humane and equitable America.
We have much to celebrate this year. KRC’s very own Program Director, Hee Joo Yoon, was recognized by the White House as a “Champion of Change” and met with President Barack Obama to discuss how to address the needs of immigrant families undergoing foreclosure. We served over 10,000 low-income, limited English proficient Korean Americans seniors, families, women, youth and children with vital social services. NAKASEC affiliates reached out to 20,000 voters in Southern California for the June Primaries and set a record for early voting in Chicago, Illinois in March. We were on the frontlines pushing back against anti-immigrant laws in Alabama by marching in solidarity with African American and other immigrant groups.
As with all our efforts, we cannot make this event a success without the help of all of our community supporters like you. We ask that you sponsor this important event by sponsoring a table, advertising in our program book, purchasing ticket or any combination of the three.
Your support and participation means so much to our organizations and community. We hope to see you at this year’s event! Thank you for your time and consideration.
