Power Station


Oct 8, 2018

Get ready for a dynamic conversation! Becky Belcore, Co-Director, and Jung Woo Kim, Organizer, at National Korean American Service & Educational Consortium (NAKASEC) talk to Power Station about their holistic approach to serving, engaging and advocating for Asian-Americans, this country's fasting growing population. NAKASEC, based in Virginia, has robust affiliates in Chicago and Los Angeles. They help new immigrants and multi-generational AAPI families access vital services and have a say use on the economic, social and political issues that directly impact their lives and well-being. Becky brings deep experience in labor organizing to NAKASEC's model of community engagement. Jung Woo brings his first-hand experience as an undocumented young person to his organizing of others in a similar position, across the cultural divide. His own journey led to Journey 2 Justice, a 37 day bike ride from Seattle to San Diego, in support of Citizenship for All. Once you hear him. you will want to join their next campaign!
