Korean Americans for Political Action (KAPA) is a 501(c)(4) non-partisan, non-profit membership organization born in 2017 as Korean Americans in Action. In 2019, the board voted to re-position and rename the organization to better fulfill its mission, which is to drive awareness and engagement of Korean Americans in American politics. Presently, there is no other organization like KAPA that works to help Americans of Korean descent seek elected and appointed office at the Federal, State, and municipal levels.
One of the key intellectual assets of KAPA is our Advisory Board, which is comprised of well-known experts in the fields of politics, law, business, academia, and community relations. We look to them for strategic guidance based on their many years of experience, vast network of contacts and belief in our mission.
