MinKwon Center For Community Action

MinKwon Center For Community Action

For 25 years, the MinKwon Center has provided free services for our community members – especially low-income people and recent immigrants – through our Social Services Program.  Our accomplishments include introducing the first ever legal clinic for the Korean community together with the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) more than 24 years ago, and in 2004 we worked with AALDEF to launch the first project offering full legal representation for the Korean community for low-income Korean immigrants facing workplace abuses and workers rights violations.
