Call to Action!

11/4 Week of Action

The time for Immigration Reform is NOW. Our families and our community can no longer wait. Members of Congress are shifting their attention to the debt ceiling and the aftermath of the recent government shutdown. Some are saying that immigration reform is no longer current, and that now is not the time to discuss the issue. This week marks the beginning of KRC (Korean Resource Center)’s efforts to keep immigration reform on the agenda. We are going to show Congressman Ed Royce that his constituents disagree. The residents of California’s 39th district are ready for Ed Royce to truly represent them.
This web page is a medium for partnering organizations and community advocates to echo the message of immigration reform remotely. It is an effort that KRC is leading in Southern California, but it is an opportunity for people that are not present to contribute to the week of action from wherever they are.

Ways to Participate:

Please call your Congressmember today and let him know that the community supports creating a new immigration process that provides citizenship for all. 에드 로이스 연방하원의원이 포괄적 이민 개혁 법안에 찬성하도록 전화를 하세요.

To call Congressmember Royce, simply dial (714) 255-0101 and say:

“Hello. My name is (your name) and I live in your district at (your address). I urge Congressmember Royce to support a new immigration process that lives up to the American Dream, keeps families together, and includes a roadmap to citizenship. Thank you.”

Stand with Families: Time to Act

National AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) Campaign

Statement of Purpose:

To ensure that an immigration reform bill is brought to the floor for debate in the House,  NAKASEC (the National Korean American Resources & Education Consortium) and its affiliates, the KRC (Korean Resource Center) in Los Angeles and KRCC (Korean American Resource and Cultural Center) in Chicago, are partnering with other AAPI immigration organizations to engage community members who are affected by today’s broken immigration system.

Now is the critical time to support a comprehensive immigration reform that:
1. Provides a clear, affordable and timely roadmap to citizenship.
2. Keeps family members together by reducing the backlogs and preserving the family immigration system.
3. Protects all workers.
4. Promotes immigrant integration services.
5. Preserves civil liberties and due process rights for all.

Immigration reform is a priority for AAPI communities and our voices must be heard. Let’s work together to  ensure that Congress acts this year!
