Poet Chi Ha Kim and his wife, Young Joo Kim visited KRC on April 4th. He is a South Korean democratization movement veteran since the 1970’s and is currently developing a “Life Spirit School of Thought” (SaengMyung), rooted in the historic DongHak peasant movement ideology.
The Health Access Project (HAP) at the Korean Resource Center seeks to improve the health status among people of color with an emphasis on Korean-Americans, foster a belief that health care should be incorporated into our daily lives and ensure Korean-American representation in health policy and funding, and education of our community in health issues.
In 2005, House Judiciary Chair James Sensenbrenner introduced and passed two extremely harsh anti-immigrant bills. In January, the REAL ID Act, now law, denied undocumented immigrants access to drivers’ licenses. The year ended with the passage of H.R.
During this critical moment in our community, KRC has created a place for young people to discuss immigrant and civil rights issues, develop their leadership, and redefine their identity as Korean Americans through education, the arts, and culture.
