Calling all Korean American or Asian American Pacific Islander college student groups in Southern California who need a little extra cash!
The Korean Resource Center would like to invite you to participate in the first-ever College Voter Challenge. The College Voter Challenge is a competition for Korean American or Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) student groups in Southern California to participate in a three-week voter registration competition in April. Whichever group registers the greatest number of voters will win $1000 for their student group!
KRC believes that Korean American college students are facing critical challenges (tuition hikes, reduced course offerings, scholarship cuts, weak economy, and barriers to higher education for undocumented students), but that through voting and registering friends, classmates, family, & community members to vote, young people can promote change.
If your student organization is interested in participating in the College Voter Challenge, please contact Dayne Lee at email@example.com or (909) 525-8565 or go to krcla.org/en/challenge, where you can download the registration form. This competition is open to the first eight student groups to register and the deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 29, so sign up soon! A thousand dollars never hurt anyone!

When Andrew Ahn decided to make a film about a gay Korean American living in Los Angeles, he had only two audience members in mind: his mom and dad. And just one message for them: “I’m gay.”
The 25-year-old had wanted to tell his parents that for some time, but couldn’t bring himself to do it. Instead, he hoped his short film, Dol (First Birthday), would speak for him. Dol, which started out as his thesis work for an MFA in film directing at California Institute of the Arts, would later be accepted into this year’s Sundance Film Festival for the Short Narrative Fiction Competition.
What was intended to be an intimate story is now screening at the largest film festival in the country.
“It’s such a small, personal film that it almost feels kind of strange that it’s big and public now,” Ahn tells KoreAm.
Read more about Ahn’s journey in making his film and coming out to his parents in the upcoming February issue of KoreAm. To check out Dol at Sundance, in progress now in Park City, Utah, click here for festival information and details on screening times.
