What is KAC and what do they do?
The Korean American Coalition (KAC) is a national non-profit, non-partisan community advocacy organization founded in Los Angeles in 1983. There are 9 chapters currently operating in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles (National Headquarter), San Diego, Seattle, Washington DC, and Portland.
They work hand-in-hand with existing Korean American community organizations as well as other community organizations and governmental agencies. KAC Oregon started in July 2014 with a mission to foster a strong Korean American community in Oregon by promoting Korean American participation in civic, legislative and community affairs through advocacy, community service, leadership development and cultural education.
