KAC-National… “Educating, Organizing & Empowering”
The Korean American Coalition (KAC) is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit and leading community-based advocacy organization dedicated to educating, organizing and empowering the 1.5 million people of Korean heritage living in the United States.
Headquartered in Los Angeles since 1983, KAC is a bilingual, non-partisan, non-profit organization with an ever-growing membership across the nation. While the Korean American community recently celebrated its Centennial Anniversary in 2003, Korean Americans still face many challenges in their pursuit of full participation in American society. KAC galvanizes first, second and third generation Korean Americans into action. Members work on various civic, legislative and political affairs to educate and empower themselves and the community.
KAC operates a national network of 7 chapters: Seattle, Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas/Ft.Worth, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C.
