The Korean American Coalition was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles, California as a non-profit service, education, and advocacy organization with the mission to facilitate the Korean-American community’s participation in civic, legislative, and community affairs.  Today, KAC has expanded to a national organization with chapters in several major cities along the East and West coasts.  With a continuously growing base of members and volunteers, KAC strives to provide a variety of services to Korean-American communities across the nation.

In April 2003, the Atlanta chapter of KAC was founded with the mission to serve the interests of the Korean-American community in Metro Atlanta.
