NAKASEC was founded by local Korean community-based organizations from across the United States. These organizations felt the need for a strong, progressive voice that could impact federal policy and build a national movement.
NAKASEC remains strongly connected with and informed by the local groups that originally formed us.
Today, these Affiliates are: the Korean Resource Center of Southern California, HANA Center of greater Chicago, and NAKASEC Virginia based in the DMV area. NAKASEC is also supporting the growth of Korean Americans for Civic Participation (KACP)/Woori Center and connecting with community members in Houston and Dallas, TX.
Our Affiliates serve as our channel to learn more about the issues impacting our community members at the grassroots level. This local to national channel directly informs NAKASEC’s national campaigns, policy agenda, and other projects.
