On Thursday, November 13, 2014, a book release party for Korean Americans Who Have Empowered the Korean-American Community (재미 한인사회에 힘을 실어준 한인들) was held at KCS (Korean Community Services) in Flushing, NY. This edited anthology, which is published in both Korean and English by Bookorea Publishing Company, features biographical essays by 18 prominent Korean-American politicians, administrators, and advocates. This is the third completed book project by the Research Center for Korean Community, and it was co-edited by Pyong Gap Min, Thomas Chung, and Young Oak Kim, and was translated by Dongho Cho. 

KCS (Korean Community Services), located at 35-56 159th Street, Flushing, NY 11358, was founded in 1973 as the first community-based service agency in the Korean community in New York City. KCS is a voluntary, non-profit, community service agency supported by government agencies, foundations, corporations, and concerned individuals. Its objectives are to develop and deliver a broad range of services to meet the various needs of the community. To achieve these objectives, KCS provides various professional community services within the areas of Aging, Community, Workforce Development, and Public Health.

Many RCKC events, including lectures and book parties, are held at KCS. We would like to thank KCS for their continued support and generosity.
