APAs Participate in Iowa’s Presidential Forum

The National Korean American Service & Education Consortium and its affiliates – Korean American Resource & Cultural Center, Korean Resource Center and YKASEC: Empowering the Korean American Community – mobilized 55 Asian Pacific Americans to participate in the Iowa Heartland Presidential Forum on Dec. 1.

As the largest gathering of likely Iowa caucus-goers, five presidential hopefuls addressed a crowd of 5,000 to offer solutions on everyday American concerns about healthcare, jobs, immigration, the environment, and housing.

“The Heartland Presidential Forum speaks to our belief as Korean Americans and Asian Pacific Americans that all communities share common values,” said EunSook Lee, executive director of the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium. “It is visible in our ongoing work to magnify this call by adding the voices of immigrants.”
