Korean American Grassroots Conference - KAGC

Korean American Grassroots Conference - KAGC The largest nationwide network of Korean American voters, KAGC is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization dedicated to uplifting our community through active civic engagement, and in turn, contribute to U.S.-Korea relations.

The largest nation-wide network of Korean American voters, KAGC leads initiatives on voter registration, civic education, community mobilization, as well as raising awareness of critical community issues among members of the U.S. Congress, in order to build a stronger voice for the Korean American community, as well as becoming the bridge between our homeland and motherland. With over 30 community partner organizations across the nation, the KAGC hosts a national conference every July in Washington, D.C. The 2017 KAGC national conference drew over 600 community members representing 97 congressional districts across 24 states, including 200 undergraduate students. 18 members of Congress from both sides of the aisle joined the 2017 KAGC in celebration of their constituents'​ and the Korean American community's active civic engagement and in support of a robust U.S.-Korea alliance. In between the national conference, KAGC also supports local community leaders in developing and implementing voter registration and civic education programs on the grassroots level. Under its college program KAGC U, over 800 undergraduate students at 102 universities have participated in voter registration efforts and civic leadership training. For more information, see the 2017 annual report at http://bit.ly/2FhHNrk

Mission: To uplift the Korean American community through active civic engagement, build a stronger voice for the community, and serve as the bridge between the homeland and motherland.

With 3 more co-sponsors added to the Adoptee Citizenship Act, we've almost reached 100 supporters in Congress. Thank you Congressman Jim Cooper, Congresswoman Katherine Clark, and Representative Sharice Davids!

Adoptee Citizenship Act is a bipartisan, common-sense measure to provide automatic and retroactive citizenship to those adopted by American parent(s) from overseas and lack citizenship through no fault of their own. Estimates hold that as many as 49,000 intercountry adoptees suffer from this crisis today. Visit http://AdopteeCitizenship.org and add YOUR name today to make this solution a reality.

Many states have recently decided to provide more access to mail voting (or absentee ballots). However, we would like to alert you about mailers from third-parties that look like materials provided by the government.

This week, up to 500,000 voters in Virginia received a vote-by-mail application from a non-profit organization that displayed inaccurate information. Mailers like this can also be misleading. Before filling it out, please make sure to:

⚠️ Check the sender and its address
⚠️ Check the recipient

Online registration is also available for absentee ballots in most states. For assistance, please reach KAGC by phone at (202) 450-4252.

Today marks the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. The landmark law that came of the blood, sweat, and tears of civil rights advocates has ensured all Americans' rights to vote, regardless of race and ethnicity.

Through its renewals, the Voting Rights Act has also significantly lowered the language barriers in voting booths. As we celebrate this occasion, we salute the sacrifices of civil rights leaders and affirm our commitment to active civic participation at every opportunity.

A Woman Without a Country: Adopted at Birth and Deportable at 30

Born in Mexico, Ms. Timble was adopted in the U.S. But at 30 years of age, she found out that she could be deportedβ€”unbeknownst to her, she was never naturalized.

Unfortunately this shocking struggle is shared by tens of thousands of intercountry adoptees who lived nearly all their lives as part of an American family and have not received U.S. citizenship through no fault of their own.

Find out more at the National Alliance for Adoptee Equality on the issue, a legislative solution, and how you can help!
