KEEP FIGHTING

Korean Americans need to keep fighting for the issues that define us.

Whether it’s making sure we have representation in Congress, or at the local level, that we keep politics out of our children’s education, or that we stay on the path of diplomacy until achieving peace on the Korean peninsula, Korean Americans must continue to find, develop, and raise our voice.

If we don’t do it, no one else will do it for us.
