20,000 March through Downtown LA for Immigration Reform

By March 30, 2010 No Comments

Last Saturday, Korean Resource Center (KRC) & NAKASEC joined more than 20,000 people in a march through downtown Los Angeles to call for immigration reform this year. KRC & NAKASEC added to the mix with our colorful nongi banners and chants alternating between “Si Se Puede” and “Hal-Su-Eet-Dah.” As the march ended, David Cho, a UCLA student & KRC member, shared his personal story on a stage in front of thousands. As the first Korean American and the first undocumented student to lead the UCLA marching band as drum major, David contributes so much to his community and his future potential is similarly great. However, his status is a huge challenge that will only get more difficult after he graduates. In our campaign for broad and just immigration reform, our greatest strength is in empowering and marching forward with David and the too many others in his situation.
