A Special Thanks to Our KAC-WA Advisory Board Members
Started in early 2002 by Korean American leaders who recognized the need for Korean American civic participation and representation under the name Korean American Voters Alliance (KAVA), volunteers set up massive voter registration drives and launched civic education programs. In September 2002, KAVA held its kick-off convention, drawing over 2,500 attendees.
In October 2006, KAVA became the official Washington State Chapter of the National Korean American Coalition (KAC) which facilitates the Korean American community's participation in civic, legislative, and community affairs and has grown into a national organization with 15 chapters across the country. In January 2008, Korean American Professionals Society (KAPS) of Seattle merged with KAC-WA to combine the resources and purposes of the two organizations, and to further strengthen the Korean American community.
KAC-WA now has over 4,500 members and support from political officials at all levels of the state of Washington.
A special thanks to our KAC Advisory Board and founders.
