Project Korea III: a Cinderella Story

Project Korea III: a Cinderella Story

This weekend the Rutger’s University Korean Student Association (KSA) is bringing you Project Korea III: a Cinderella Story. Join the Korean Students Association as they venture through a “different Korea.” Based on the hit Korean drama “궁” (Goong, aka Princess Hours), this timeless musical explores a hypothetical Korea where the royal family still flourishes. You will laugh, cry, and be amazed by all the acting, dancing and singing as they portray this “different Korea”, helping to realize the importance of embracing one’s heritage. There will be special performances by Johnnyphlo, Decipher, Clara Chung, and Art of Movement (AOM). One of the members of AOM is Jay Park (formerly Jae-beom from 2PM). If it’s anything like what happened to our site a week ago, expect a huge mob on the Rutgers campus for Jay Park.

Rutgers KSA is welcoming all ages to join them at projectKOREA III: A KSA Cinderella Story! A portion of the proceeds will go to LiNK’s (Liberation in North Korea) TheHundred Campaign. For more details, go here.

Do You Count?

Here’s another interesting collabo for the 2010 Census. Kaya:Filipino Americans for Progress in partnership with the Center for Asian American Media, Hyphen Magazine, Hope Road Consulting, Blacklava, and Jason Carpio (channelAPA‘s graphic designer) got together to get the word out about the census.

During the 2000 Census, the Asian Pacific Islander population lost $2.1 billion in federal funding for important community programs in California alone just from being undercounted. Some of your friends or family members may be afraid that their census answers will complicate or reveal their immigration status or somehow compromise their employment status. THE FACT IS census answers cannot be used against you or your family members in ANY way. Your confidentiality is protected by LAW. Census data is important because it is used to plan for vital services such as employment training centers, schools, hospitals, senior programs, and many more services in your community.

Tell your friends and family that being counted is important for your future and for your community.It only happens once in 10 years. Speak up and BE COUNTED in the 2010 Census.
