Korean Resource Center (KRC)

The Korean Resource Center (KRC) is a non-profit organization located in the heart of Los Angeles' Koreatown.

The Korean Resource Center is organized around four core functions: education, social service, civil rights and culture. The Center provides education programs in African American, Latino, and Asian Pacific American history, community forums on social justice issues, Korean classes for young adults, Korean-American bi-cultural adaptation, computer internet training, and tax clinics.
