Grants to HANA Center
2017 (Duration 8 months)
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — The HANA Center is a new organization created by the merger of the Korean American Resource and Cultural Center, an immigrants’ rights organization founded in 1995, and Korean American Community Services, a social service provider established in 1972. With this award, the HANA Center offers education sessions for Chicago’s Asian American communities on changes to federal immigration policy; provides a telephone hotline offering information on those policy changes in the Korean language; facilitates the convening of Asian American youth in organizing sessions; and enables the HANA Center to install security upgrades to its physical premises. These activities will provide Asian Americans in Chicago with valuable information on changes to immigration policy and mechanisms to protect their communities.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded HANA Center $25,000 between 1978 and 2017.
