Connect Young Korean American Leaders for Success

Thanks to your support, the Council of Korean Americans was able to launch the Emerging Leaders Network platform. Following the conclusion of our 2020 IgniteNextGen Professional Fellowship and summer mentoring events, we had an influx of Korean American college students and young professionals eager to engage and connect with one another. 

With the approaching Spring semester and a wave of new and talented individuals preparing to enter the workforce, CKA is committed to empowering the next generation of Korean American leaders and is continuing to push out our Emerging Leaders Network professional development social platform. 

On the platform, we have established the following resource hubs: 1) media center with training videos, insights, & resources, 2) job, internship, & scholarship postings, and 3) webinars from established Korean American decision-makers and thought leaders. As more and more leaders join the platform, the network expands and grows in potential.

On behalf of the Council of Korean Americans, we sincerely thank you again for your generosity as we continue this necessary effort. We hope that you will continue to invest in the future of the Korean American community.

Lift Korean American Voices with National Survey

Even as Korean Americans become part of the fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States, we have struggled to make our voice and influence known due to the very limited data and information made available about the Korean American community. 

To solve this issue, the Council of Korean Americans has partnered with Professor Taeku Lee, George Johnson Professor of Law & Political Science at U.C. Berkeley, to conduct a national survey collecting demographic data of Korean American’s political, economic, and societal status in the United States. 

As a first step, Professor Lee has been gathering the most up-to-date and comprehensive research on the 1.8 million Korean Americans in the U.S. and is compiling them into a single report. This report charts the evolving attitudes among Korean Americans in all aspects: voting patterns, socioeconomic status, social tendencies, relations with other ethnic groups, stances on domestic and foreign issues, and more.

With your continued support and donations to our campaign, we are able to continue to provide this invaluable research to government, nonprofit, think tanks, and academic institutions alike.

On behalf of the Council of Korean Americans, we sincerely thank you again for your generosity as we continue this necessary effort. We hope that you will continue to invest in the future of the Korean American community.

Support Korean American Nonprofits During COVID-19

Korean American Association of Greater Atlanta

Thanks to your support, the Council of Korean Americans was able to help fund and support nonprofit organizations across the U.S., particularly those on the frontlines helping the most vulnerable in our communities. 

We decided to prioritize three areas of need:

  1. Service for low-income senior/elderly Korean American population
  2. Mental health/family counseling service for the KA community.
  3. Economic support for undocumented families impacted by the economic downturn.

We worked hard to help other nonprofit organizations provide financial support for their respective communities, and we valued your support in our endeavors, as well! Your donations directly benefited these communities that have been impacted by COVID-19.

  • Korean American Association of Greater Atlanta
  • Korean Community Services of Greater Washington
  • Korean Community Services of Metropolitan New York
  • Korean American Family Services - Los Angeles
  • Korean American Community Services - Silicon Valley

As CKA continues to support these Korean American communities, funds will be given to nonprofits in these regions that support Korean Americans who are low-income seniors/support elder care, assist with mental health & family counseling, or provide aid to undocumented families. Direct assistance will continue to be offered to nonprofits on the frontlines of helping the most vulnerable populations of Korean Americans & ensure their constituents do not fall due to a lack of funding.

On behalf of the Council of Korean Americans, we sincerely thank you again for your generosity as we continue this necessary effort. We hope that you will continue to invest in the well-being of the Korean American community.
