April 5th is the Night of 1,000 Conversations

On Thursday, April 5, 2007, thousands of people all across the country will come together in living rooms, basements, back yards, community centers, schools, and places of worship to work towards immigration reform that restores basic civil liberties and human rights, protects core American values of fairness and justice, and defend due process for everyone. The Korean Resource Center and the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium are inviting people to act as hosts for one of these conversations. They hope participants to share their stories and the values they would like to guide immigration reform. By April, Congress will have a bill for comprehensive immigration reform either in their committees or even being debated on the floor. These conversations are an opportunity to reflect on core values, compare them to our current immigration system, and come together to bring our laws back in line with those values.

They are asking that hosts for a conversation will provide a space for the conversation to occur; invite 10-15 friends, neighbors, colleagues, and/or other community members to take part; make follow-up phone calls to each person invited; provide light refreshments; facilitate the conversation; attend a one-hour training session to prepare for the event; and submit a brief report back form so that you can tell us how your conversation went. If you are interested in hosting a conversation as part of the Night of 1,000 Conversations, please complete the sign-up form at http://krcla.org/en/Night_of_1000_Conversations and mail or drop off the completed form by Tuesday, March 27, 2007 to:Heejoo Yoon, Korean Resource Center. Email: yoonheejoo@krcla.org, Fax 323-937-3526 or mail to 900 S. Crenshaw Bl., Los Angeles, CA 90019. For more information, call Heejoo Yoon at 323-937-3718.
