One out of every seven Asian Americans are undocumented immigrants in the United States. Woori Center believes that advocating for our most vulnerable community members is the first step toward building a society where everyone thrives together. Everyone deserves to be treated according to our humanity and not fear being separated from their loved ones. We believe in the power of community organizing. When we empower and organize our communities, we can win and make change!
In 2021, Woori Center is focusing its community organizing work on three campaigns for immigration justice. On a national level, Woori Center joins NAKASEC National, NAKASEC VA, Hana Center, and MinKwon Center for our Citizenship for All: 100 Days Campaign. Within Pennsylvania, Woori Center advocates for legislative changes, such as driver’s licenses for all and tuition equity, alongside local immigrant rights organizations.
