The Korean Resource Center warmly invites you to support our annual fundraiser on Friday, December 8, 2006. The event will be at the Wilshire United Methodist Church, 4350 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90010. The dinner will begin at 6:30 pm and the program will follow at 7:00 pm. Currently, we are seeking sponsors who can purchase a table and/or place an advertisement in our dinner program book. Attached please find a copy of the table and advertising rates.

The year ahead presents much hope and challenges for the low income and immigrant communities. In order to achieve genuine social economic change that benefits all Americans, we must adopt a more inclusive mandate and begin to reach out to work with diverse constituencies. It means we must focus on deep education and long term organizing of our community. This year, our theme recognizes the words of poet Antonio Machado, “Make The Road By Walking.”

The Korean Resource Center was founded in 1983 to empower Korean Americans through a holistic model of social service, education, culture, organizing and advocacy. This year’s highlights are:

  • Served 5,110 low income families through various programs including Naturalization clinics, health access for children and seniors, Low Income Tax Clinic, Citizenship English Class, Computer/Internet Class, and Health Days for the uninsured.
  • Pre-development of an affordable senior housing project with the Little Tokyo Service Center, CDC.
  • Increasing Korean American participation in the immigration reform movement through marches, rallies, and other actions as well as anchoring the “We Are America” Picture Postcard Campaign.
  • Registered, educated and mobilized 18,000 voters.
  • Two solidarity trips to New Orleans to work with the People’s Organizing Committee in their rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Katrina.
  • Formed Community Health Promoters, a 20-member strong senior health advocates for language access in the health care system and ORAnGE (Organize, Rise Up, Act, ‘N Get Empowered) a 20-member strong youth group organizing for legalization and higher education access for all.

We hope that you will be able to support us this year. We will be making a call to follow-up with the above request later this week. Should you have any questions, please contact me at 323. 937. 3718, x102 or djyoon@krcla.org . Thank you.

Sincerely,

Dae Yoon, Executive Director

Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you ddfgdbdedbebfagb
