KRC is focusing on community education to ensure the information available in the community is not biased or distorted against homeless housing. There are various ways to join:
- Write an op-ed to get it published in the Korean American newspapers! You don't have to speak Korean - we will translate your piece!
- Sign our petition form! (There is also a Change.org petition set up by someone in the community)
- Post your message of support on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #ShelterKtown
- Contact us to express your support! (323-937-3718 #0, question [at] krcla.org)
We are exploring more avenues to gather the public energy on the issue.
Shelter for All Koreatown is an online group of young Korean Americans, Asian Americans and community members from the area who were already active in support before KRC had started official involvement on May 9th. They also have a Twitter account.
The agenda item on building the site passed the Homelessness and Poverty Committee on May 22. We will share the full council hearing date as we find out (likely to be some time in June) - please join us at the hearing!
