Introducing the second installment in the 2022 CKA Elevate Series, CKA’s new video initiative consists of brief 5-minute interviews to elevate leaders for greater impact in their respective sectors and industries. We invite you to engage, network, and grow with us as we spotlight our very own Korean American trailblazers.

Meet Congresswoman Marilyn Strickland (WA-10) and Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-3) who share the importance of inter-community solidarity, increasing Korean American visibility in politics, and the growth of the Korean American community.

These interviews were completed during CKA – KACLA’s SAIGU@30 Leadership Conference, which commemorated the 30th anniversary of the LA Riots and was held in Koreatown-Los Angeles on April 30th. As Keynote Panelists, they discussed their perspectives on public service and bridge-building between communities.
