NAKASEC Calls on Virginia Youth and Community Members: We Need You Because We Cannot Wait Any Longer

Keep the conversation alive about the need to drop the lawsuit on DACA+/DAPA and help get out the vote this November 3rd

WHAT: The National Korean American Service and Education Consortium (NAKASEC) will hold a press conference on Wednesday, October 14 to urge Virginians to become active members of the community by fasting to demand the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to rule on the administrative relief case, by voting and volunteering for the November 3rd elections, and by preparing for the 2016 presidential elections.

NAKASEC and its affiliates, the Korean American Resource and Cultural Center (KRCC) and the Korean Resource Center (KRC), pledge to join solidarity fasts and lead community conversations in support of the “The Fast to Keep Families Together” – a powerful 9 day fast and vigil starting on October 14th outside the courthouse in New Orleans. NAKASEC will also be recruiting volunteers to get out the vote in Virginia to elect leaders in the General Assembly who will put American values first and support our immigrant families.
