On Thursday, October 20, 2016 the Korean Resource Center (KRC) will host an Early Vote "Town Hall" for 200 to 300 Korean speaking senior citizens and other new immigrant voters to help navigate the voting process, understand ballot initiatives and candidates, and provide assistance with completing vote-by-mail applications. Inspired by KRC's experience of the last 10 years, during which we assisted thousands of Korean-speaking, senior, and first time voters seeking help about the voting process, specific candidates and ballot initiatives, KRC is organizing this town hall to educate, empower and turn out the Korean American vote.
Since 1996, KRC has been a powerful voice in the Los Angeles Koreatown civic engagement landscape and Ktown provider of much needed services to thousands of low-income, immigrant families and individuals. Over the past month, KRC volunteers registered over 5,500 voters in Los Angeles and Orange County, reached out to 39,411 voters across the state of California, with 2,519 voters pledging to vote on November 8th. The program includes High School and College students, adults, and 80 year old seniors.
