The Korean American Family Service Center (KAFSC) is launching its new public service campaign,”Strength, Resilience, Justice,” to commemorate National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, which is from April 2 to 8.
The campaign will be featured on two major Korean-speaking radio stations – FM 87.7 Korean Radio Broadcasting (KRB) and AM 1660 K-Radio.
According to the organization, the initiative’s goal is to encourage underserved crime victims to learn more about their rights and available resources toward recovery. They say it will also send a “clear message” that the immigrant community should come together to advocate for the rights of crime victims.
KAFSC is a local nonprofit organization that aims to prevent and end domestic violence and relationship abuse, ultimately to create a “violence-free society.” Its programs include a 24-hour bilingual hotline, individual and family counseling, advocacy for clients in the legal, medical and public welfare systems, and community workshops on a variety of topics.
The group will launch the campaign at a press conference on Monday, April 3rd at 11 a.m. in front of the 109th Precinct at 37-05 Union Street.
