In order to motivate Asian Americans to register to vote, #IAmAsianAmerican put on simultaneous events in four cities, with the flagship event at the Wiltern in Koreatown on October 16, 2016. KAC registered voters before the concert and at the After Party/Night Market in front of the RadioKorea building.
KAC, KAFLA, and the North Valley Voters Alliance co-sponsored a candidate forum in conjunction with the League of Women Voters for District 5's Supervisorial Seat. The candidates, Kathryn Barger and Darrell Park, discusses a wide range of topics relevant to the residents of the North Valley.
On Thursday, October 13th, KAC hosted its 22nd Annual Legislative Luncheon at Yong Su San Restaurant. Over twenty elected officials from every level of government attended and spoke on the issues of homelessness and civic engagement. In addition to a record turn out in elected officials, this year's Luncheon also saw increased participation from the Korean American community.
KAC would like to thank all the elected officials that came out in support of the Korean American community and extend special thanks to Jamison Services, SoCalGas, and Gingi Marketing Fundamental for their support!
