With your support, to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Sa-i-gu (1992 LA Riot / LA Uprising), CKA and Korean American Coalition – Los Angeles (KAC / KAC-LA) organized the April 30, 2022, full-day SAIGU@30 Leadership Conference as an opportunity for emerging leaders and young professionals to connect with Asian American executives, civic leaders, and experts so that, together, they can discuss SA-I-GU’s impact in shaping the Korean American community and the important work of bridge-building across racial and ethnic groups.

Over 270 students, professionals, and leaders gathered at The LINE LA Hotel to discuss Korean American identity, leadership, community service, and strengthening the next generation to continue amplifying the voices of Asian Americans. 

Topics included social entrepreneurship, shaping the corporate world for good, women in executive leadership, civic engagement within the Asian American community, Korean American voices in media/ entertainment, and Korean Americans in biotech, medicine, and health.

The attendees had an overwhelmingly positive response of gratitude and reflection.

Thank you for providing a space for Korean Americans to gather, celebrate our achievements, reflect, and discuss ways to uplift our community and other communities of color." - SAIGU@30 Leadership Conference Attendee

Furthermore, CKA provided the opportunity, through the SAIGU@30 Leadership Conference, to hold an intergenerational and cross-sector discussion on the events and impact of April 29, 1992, a day that many members of younger generations are not even aware of. Through this opportunity, CKA saw bridge-building across generations, communities, and industries, as well as rejuvenated discussions on how to combat challenges, especially the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes and violence, and how to work together to educate & empower emerging leaders.

Thank you for your continued support in healing and uplifting the Korean American community so that we can build a brighter future together.

In light of recent attacks on Asian American women, your support on #StopAsianHate is more critical than ever as CKA continues to stand up against racism and violence. Thank you for lifting up our community members who feel vulnerable to harm and fear for their safety. Please read CKA’s full statement.

In remembrance of the 2021 Atlanta Spa tragedy and in honor of International Women’s Day, CKA organized “A Conversation about Hope and Healing for Korean American Women Amid Anti-Asian Racism” on March 15th, 2022. Women from all life stages were invited to join an online conversation on anti-Asian racism and healing. Secondly, CKA will be hosting “SAIGU@30 Leadership Conference'' to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the 1992 SAIGU in Koreatown - Los Angeles. Korean American executives, civic leaders, and experts will gather in person to discuss the impact of SAIGU on the Korean American community and focus on strengthening the next generation through mentorship sessions and leadership development workshops.

We value your support in our efforts to condemn racial injustice and empower the AAPI community.

With your gracious support in this #StopAsianHate relief fund, the Council of Korean Americans helped fund and support nonprofit organizations across the U.S. working to protect and serve our most vulnerable populations in the Korean American communities. The constituents of these nonprofits have been negatively affected by anti-Asian hate and violence. 

We prioritized three areas of need: 1) service for seniors/elderly Korean American population; 2) mental health/family counseling service for the KA community; and 3) economic support for undocumented families.

We value your support in our endeavors to provide aid for nonprofit organizations. Your donations directly benefited these communities that have been impacted by COVID-19.

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.
