With your continued support, CKA is excited to host a national Policy Summit with 200 - 250 attendees for a full-day of productive and meaningful discussions about the Korean American community. The Summit will feature senior Korean American, Asian American and mainstream American thought leaders and decision-makers to examine critical issues that shape the Korean American community, its diverse leaders and the future of U.S. - Korea relations. 

For a full-day, the Summit will consist of inspirational keynote speakers, informative panel sessions throughout the day, and breakout sessions around specific topics for in-depth group discussions including: 

  • Korean American Leaders in Innovation & Entrepreneurship  
  • Media, Art and Entertainment
  • Areas for collaboration between Korean and Korean American communities; 
  • Korean American relations with other racial / ethnic groups; 
  • Importance of Mentorship 

The goal of the Policy Summit is ultimately to better inform and equip Korean American leaders with capabilities to be even more impactful within their local communities, professional sectors, and on the national stage.  

Thank you for your investment in initiatives that help shape our community and continue to grow national influence of Korean American leaders across the country.

CKA’s landmark publication The National Korean American Community: Promises, Perils, and Paradoxes, authored by esteemed political scientist Dr. Taeku Lee of UC Berkeley, is preparing for its second iteration. With the rising visibility of Korean American presence on the national stage, it is imperative that we provide national and local leaders with data to help identify Korean Americans’ critical needs and priorities. 

The report is an important resource for CKA members and events which include CKA’s upcoming 30th anniversary of 1992 SAIGU in Koreatown - Los Angeles and various leadership conferences and events. Moreover, it is currently a part of CKA’s membership onboarding process where new or potential members can educate themselves on the national state of the Korean American community.

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.

CKA’s landmark publication The National Korean American Community: Promises, Perils, and Paradoxes, authored by noted political scientist Dr. Taeku Lee of UC Berkeley, continues to be read and discussed by community members and beyond. 

As mentioned prior, this report is part of a multi-year project to provide national and local leaders––as well as civic organizations––with data and trend analysis to help identify Korean Americans’ critical needs and priorities. This published analysis was the first step in this project.

We are preparing to conduct a second iteration of this survey in order to capture every Korean American in the country. With data collected in both Korean and English, we are committed to ensuring that everyone within our community has the opportunity to participate.

On January 13, 2021, the Council of Korean Americans celebrated Korean American Day with our landmark publication The National Korean American Community: Promises, Perils, and Paradoxes authored by noted political scientist Dr. Taeku Lee of UC Berkeley. 

Although highly educated and economically thriving as a whole, this revealing report also contests the myth that Korean Americans are a “model minority” group. The community faces many systemic inequities, including broad socio-economic discrimination and large pockets of poverty, especially among older generations. Many Korean Americans regularly experience racial microaggressions in their neighborhoods and suffer from high levels of substance abuse.

“In addition to detailing the progress and challenges of the community, this important research highlights the critical areas that Korean Americans need to work more intentionally to address, such as actively building bridges with other racial groups and encouraging fellow members to be more civically engaged,” shares CKA Executive Director, Abraham Kim. 

 This report is part of a multi-year project to provide national and local leaders––as well as civic organizations––with data and trend analysis to help identify Korean Americans’ critical needs and priorities. This published analysis is the first step in this project.

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.
