History of K.A.A.G.N.Y

Founded in 1960, the Korean-American Association of Greater New York not only represents half a million Korean-Americans residing in the New York Metropolitan area, but also advocates for the enhancement of political rights and interests of Korean-Americans. The Korean-American Association of Greater New York is a non- profit organization which has served as a bridge that connects Korean-American to the American mainstream along with approximately 500 other Korean-American organizations in the New York metropolitan area in various fields of specialty, including education, culture, vocational help, and community affair. I have been doing community service for the past 17 years in various different capacities and for the last 5 years, was the president of the Korean American Youth Foundation which helps 2nd generation Korean-Americans with their advancement into mainstream.

I have decided to run for the president of KAAGNY because even though there are so many different organizations in the Korean community that are doing similar work, I believe that we are spreading our resources too thin.

However if we can work together, we can accomplish much more and reap bigger benefits.

If elected as the president of KAAGNY, I want to get young Korean-Americans involved so they can work to understand the Korean-American community and go out to mainstream to represent our community. This will close the gap between the 1st and 2nd generation Korean Americans.
