Korean Resource Center (KRC) will receive the $10,000 grant to launch the “My Parents Vote for Our Future” project, empowering Los Angeles Korean American youth to engage their parents in civic life and elections.Get
Immigrant Korean American adults represent a notoriously hard-to-reach population. Most have limited English proficiency, work long hours, and are unfamiliar with the voting process. At the same time, they care deeply about quality of life issues, especially education.
With the My Parents Vote for Our Future campaign, KRC will target voters age 30-55 and, based on its past track record, predicts that at least 5,000 unlikely voters will turn out in 2012.
