You are cordially invited to KALCA’s 16th Annual Gala: A Call to Action on March 18, 2016 at The Yale Club. Reception starts at 6:30pm.
This year our theme “A Call to Action” highlights part of KALCA’s mission which is to increase civic participation in the AAPI community through advocacy, education and mobilization.
For the past 16 years, KALCA has strived to make this vision a reality for the next-generation of AAPI civic leaders through our College Internship Program, an intensive eight-week program that provides college students and recent graduates with the opportunity to learn about the civic and democratic processes from the inside of leading government offices, political campaigns, non-profit and community-based organizations in New York City. In addition to their public service internship, KALCA interns participate in seminars, professional development trainings, and are exposed to various cultural and networking events.
We hope that you will answer our “Call to Action” by attending or sponsoring the 2016 KALCA Gala!
Fresh Off the Vote: A Night of Voter Empowerment and Drinks
To kick off the 2016 election season, KALCA (Korean American League for Civic Action) is partnering with KAPA (Korean Americans for Political Advancement) to raise awareness and funds to address and combat barriers facing Asian American voters. Taking place on November 3rd at 6:30pm, Fresh Off the Vote: A Night of Voter Empowerment and Drinks is both a celebration of Korean and Asian American empowerment, and a push for these communities to increase voter presence and power.
As a much needed opportunity for people to meet advocates, community organizers, public servants, and non-profit professionals in the front lines, guests will be able to enjoy libations and food while networking with community members who care about social, civic, and political change for Asian Americans.
To show how our communities can be politically active, Community Board Chair, Gigi Li, will chat with guests about the current Chinatown rezoning controversy. By learning about how Gigi and Chinatown’s community leaders are fighting to keep the neighborhood affordable for immigrant communities, attendees will have the opportunity to see how individuals and civic groups can protect their political and racial identities.
Attendees who provide their business card/contact information and register to vote at the event will have the opportunity to win a delectable food and karaoke experience at INSA, a Korean BBQ restaurant opening in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Package includes one hour of karaoke (up to 8 people), one beverage per guest, and a selection from the bar menu to feed that passion for singing! Restrictions may apply.
Should you have any questions regarding the event, please contact Yejin Lee, Steering Committee Member ([email protected]) or Charles Youn, Executive Director ([email protected]).
