Thank you to everyone who was able to join us in our Community Empowerment Workshop on October 20, 2018!
We had around 150 people at the event and are excited at how people will continue to be involved with different aspects of the Korean community. In order to continue to cultivate that energy and drive, KAC is uploading the presentations from the workshop sessions from Asian American Advancing Justice-Atlanta, Korean Adoptees Association of Georgia, and Re’Generation Movement. If you have any additional questions or inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta (AAAJ)
Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta is the first non-profit law center dedicated to the civil rights of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) in the Southeast.
They are one of five independent organizations that make up the national Asian Americans Advancing Justice affiliation. Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta was established in 2010 to engage, educate, and empower under-represented AANHPis to participate in civic life.
Korean Adoptees Association of Georgia (KAAG)
KAAG strives to engage and empower Korean Adoptees in Georgia to inform the broader community about international adoptee experiences and services. This session will offer the community an opportunity to meet Korean Adoptees (KADs) in Atlanta, learn the latest resources and initiatives that support international adoptees, and discuss how KADs can help to strengthen Korean community empowerment in Atlanta.
Re’Generation empowers people with diverse backgrounds—including refugees and immigrants—to find their identities and voices as global citizens for them to contribute in creating harmonious societies, where diversity is celebrated and opportunity is fairly distributed. They strive to embody this vision by 1) Empowering Youth through Education: offering free SAT/ACT prep classes and college counseling; and 2) Creating Space for Conversations: hosting lectures and study groups on social integration, peace building, and reconciliation.
