About Our Program
From citizenship programs to voter registration, education, and mobilization to protecting the fundamental rights of our communities, NAKASEC seeks to create a seamless path to the full integration of immigrants into American society. NAKASEC’s Naturalization Program is an important springboard to our work.
Through clinics and workshops, NAKASEC’s local partners provide English Language/Civics and Naturalization Classes; in-person consultations; N-400 application assistance, related translation, notarization; and legal assistance.
We employ a grassroots strategy to educate and outreach into the Korean American community, including direct tabling at events, publicity through ethnic media outlets, and the development of culturally competent materials. To carry out our work, we have partnerships with ally organizations from local community colleges to legal aid organizations and have cultivated a strong and trained volunteer base.
The Korean Resource Center’s naturalization service began in 2006 and serves the Los Angeles and Orange County area in Southern California. The Korean American Resource and Cultural Center’s program began in 2004 and serves the Chicago-area and the northwest Suburbs. KRCC also collaborates closely with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.
