Our mission is to organize Korean and Asian Americans to achieve social, economic and racial justice.
What We Do
The National Korean American Service and Education Consortium (NAKASEC) is a dynamic grassroots-based organization founded in 1994 by local community centers to project a progressive voice and promote the full participation of Korean Americans and Asian Americans within the social justice movement.
NAKASEC began its work in Virginia in 2012, and current programs include Immigrant Rights advocacy, Civic Engagement (increasing voter turn out and participation in the 2020 census), Youth Leadership Development, and Community Services (Citizenship Promotion and Health care referrals).
NAKASEC's Virginia chapter (NAKASEC VA) develops holistic programs and campaigns that are guided by community members, meets immediate needs while building AAPI community power for the long-term systemic changes that address the root causes of those needs, and centers human connections. We believe that Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders (AAPI), low-income folks, working class people, immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, and other targeted people must work together in order to have a more just and equitable Virginia for all.
